MEET BILLY POZZO

  • ARTIST STATEMENT

    Billy Pozzo is a Midwest contemporary artist, known for his highly skilled and versatile work in paint and sculpture. His mastery of realistic drawing and painting techniques also allow him to push the limits of his imagination while maintaining high craft when he explores the rough underbelly of life portrayed in often dark and humorous imagery.

    “I’m most often inspired by personal experiences and people I know. When I do a realistic portrait, I strive to tell something important about that person. My more imaginative caricature sculptures or paintings are often narratives that illustrate actual happenings and people, blended with darkness, humor and exaggeration.”

    In 2013, his painting, Self Portrait, received the Award of Excellence at the 70th Annual Salon Show at South Shore Arts, Munster, IN, Trained at the American Academy of Art in Chicago; Billy has spent much of his career working as a custom fabricator of large sculptural pieces for artists, museums and corporate clients.

  • MEET RYAN DEMPSAY

  • ARTIST STATEMENT

    Thanks for taking the time to view my profile! I am a twenty-year-old Psychology and Art double major at Indiana University Northwest. I have always been passionate about the arts and intend to continue pursuing various artistic endeavors regardless of where my life may take me.

    The five pieces that I will be displaying for the Pop-Up event are thematically linked. Each piece explores some aspect of the human body with the intent to accentuate the truly artistic beauty of the human form. I am hoping that my work inspires a respect and appreciation for the body that may have previously been overlooked.
