"The focus of my work is based on observation of the world mixed with a taste for fantasy. The world changes with time. It could be real, surreal, or abstract, depending on what’s happening at a given time. Therefore, our environment, humanity, and technology are united to shape a new reality."
Billy Moro-Wey’s artistic career overtook his early ambitions of working in medicine, progressing from being a self-taught artist through international travel and postgraduate studies experience. Moro-Wey has built an extensive portfolio with many dozen exhibitions, both solo and group, to his name, alongside numerous awards and accolades. Now retired from his role as an arts educator, Moro-Wey turns his attention to being a full-time artist.
Working in multiple disciplines, notably painting (oil on canvas), soft pastel on paper and ceramics, Moro-Wey demonstrates a versatile practice and confidence with an eclectic set of artistic modes. From large-scale murals or intimate portraiture, Moro-Wey’s long-time experience as an artist offers viewers a generous outlook on our world.
