hile perhaps best known in San Diego County for curating edgy, underground art shows with his artist collective RADIOACTIVE FUTURE in the 2000s, Bill Pierce returns after a long hiatus with a new art project, a new name, and a new attitude.

Under the pseudonym PIERCE WILLIAMS, his new series of stencil serigraph prints will debut at Artlab, 3536 Adams Avenue, San Diego, with a free opening reception on Saturday, March 1, 2014 from 7 – 11pm. His solo art show, called REINVENTION, will continue to be on display Tuesday-Saturday, March 4 – 31, 1 – 6pm daily.

The artist calls his new project the PIERCE WILLIAMS STENCIL ART REVOLUTION, and the work features his new technique of creating fine art prints by hand, with a plastic stencil, silkscreen ink, and roller brush. Each print is 4 color, 18”x24”, ink on 24lb. cover stock. 400 of each design are made as signed /numbered limited editions. Of the 400, 100 of each color are made in brown, yellow, red and blue.

The artist has primarily done portraits of musicians so far for this series, including Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Dave Gahan, Elvis Costello, Fiona Apple, Ice Cube, Johnny Cash, Jonathan Richman, Lou Reed and Trent Reznor. Planned portraits include more musicians, visual artists, actors, and other famous people.
