Bill Buchman

Bill Buchman, an internationally represented American artist, lived and worked for twenty years in Europe, primarily in Copenhagen and Paris. Now Bill lives in Sarasota, Florida where he teaches and has his studio. Bill gives local and national workshops on both the creative process and on figure drawing and has made popular educational DVDs on both of these subjects. He studied painting and drawing with renowned teacher Victor D'Amico at the Museum of Modern Art's Institute of Modern Art, East Hampton, NY and also with leading American figurative painter Fletcher Martin at the Albany Institute of Art, in Albany, NY. Bill attended Cornell University School of Fine Arts and Boston University School of Liberal Arts and has a Bachelor's Degree and a Master's Degree in music from the New England Conservatory of Music. Buchman's expressive figure drawings and brightly colored spontaneous abstractions may be seen in private and public collections in Denmark, Sweden, England and the US and at galleries in Sarasota, Copenhagen, New York and other locales. Bill is sponsored by the California-based Savoir Faire, importer of European art materials, and gives regular classes on how to draw the human figure at the Ringling College, Longboat Key Center for the Arts on Longboat Key in Florida. Bill's upcoming book, "Expressive Figure Drawing", will be published in 2010 by Random House/Watson Guptill publishers. Bill says, of his work, "Harmony is my keynote. Ideas from the realm of music are my main source of inspiration. At the same time, a broad spectrum of ideas and techniques of European Modernism of the early 20th century, the artistic philosophy and methods of Chinese and Japanese painting, as well as Renaissance and Classical concepts all provide some bearings for the ongoing voyage."
