"A Gallery for Artists and Collectors
who are Independent of Mind, Brave and Loyal."

Monday 3 April 2017 to Sunday 9 April 2017


Visual artist (painting, drawing and mixed media), filmmaker and writer. Born in Glen Ridge, N.J., he lives and works in New York City. he has an A.B from Harvard University, where he studied painting and art history, and has studied painting and drawing at the Art Students League in New York and in Florence, Italy. 

I met Bill Claps during Armory Show Week 2015. He was exhibiting in New York with the (un) SCENE as was Niloufar BANISADR. For both of us the show was one of the best surprises we can enjoy during art weeks. Bill Claps performances and installation were striking and the artist was friendly and generous  of his time and his willingness to share his concept. Indeed Bill was in his « Morse » period, when he was projecting, by night coded messages on buildings, mostly art galleries, but also sometimes media and museums, such as Moma PS1 or Guggenheim. It was not our time to join efforts, but two years later and after a few encounters, it became clear we could try something for Bill in Paris and he was a candidate successfully for Faces n° 3. We already sold few of his “gold paintings” and hopefully it is just the beginning.

Bill will present a large body of his past and present works during his solo, each piece is unique but there are five versions per size. So if you love one, you shouldn’t hesitate too long, they sell quickly, especially now that the recognition of Bill is scaling fast !
