William Massey is a freelance artist, sculptor, creative entrepreneur, and a co-leader of art programs within social organizations and health facilities throughout the city of Atlanta, Ga.
William initially found his voice through art during his time at Valdosta State University, receiving his BFA in 2012. William arrived to Atlanta in 2013 to begin his art career consisting of outlets such as glassblowing, teaching art to homeless youth, and public art installations. He has gradually evolved into a force of creative connection in Atlanta – utilizing the power of art to unify communities, uplift public spaces, pursue social and racial reconciliation, and creatively comfort those in hardship.
William has traveled throughout the globe with his artwork, serves on the boards and leads art programs with several local organizations, founded ColorATL, and has a number of works exhibiting publicly around Atlanta, Ga.
Some of Williams projects are completed with the help of 200+ community members from all walks of life.
Much of the work is made from found objects, trash and glass.
Founded ColorATL where each page of a coloring book is done by a local artist. For each copy sold he donates a copy to someone facing hardship in the city.
