Bill Tavis

I have a background in both computer animation and graffiti, as well as traditional art like figure drawing, and I have worked tirelessly to hone my skills in all of those areas. My halftone murals make full use of my diverse knowledge base and I am constantly pushing the limits of my technique. My halftone style involves varying the width of a repeating pattern to create the illusion of an image. Halftones are used all the time f0r commercial printing, where they are made as small as possible to hide them. In my art, I scale them up so that the pattern becomes an integral part of the image. I like to find a balance point where both the image and the pattern are visible. With mural work, often times people cannot see anything but the pattern when they are standing close, but when they look through their phone or from far away they are stunned to see a fully shaded realistic image emerge! I will often employ fractals and other complicated patterns in my halftones to give the images a unique and energetic quality. Halftones get their name from black and white tonal imagery and I enjoy doing things that way, but I also have the ability to recreate full color imagery using as many as 8 or 9 colors at once.
