Willie Nash was born and raised in New York and moved to London in 2007.
Since the age of 14 when he first took up photography he has been influenced by the arts including theatre, sculpture, film, and painting.
Taking an interest in all aspects of human history, he finds all cultures, ancient and modern, to have a great amount to contribute to his scrapbook of ideas. He manipulates and layers these concepts to create his own “epics”. He considers them u-chronistic relics of a utopian theatre performing a bleakly comedic “nature show”. These are narratives that explore patterns in human culture: the political, the technological, the environmental, or the psycho-sexual.
Though his work is often presented as photography, Willie considers the theatrical as well as the sculptural elements to be equally as tantamount in the final artwork.
