Fabian Williams aka Occasional Superstar

Fabian Williams aka Occasional Superstar is an artist born and raised in Fayetteville, NC, now living in Atlanta, GA. Fabian received a BFA from East Carolina University in Illustration. After working for 13 years in the advertising industry with a long list of clients from Nike, Warner Bros to HBO, he decided to move to a purely expressive practice outside of the commercial space where he had the freedom to express more political and socially relevant contemporary themes.

In 2009, He created the World Wide Art Federation, a performance art battle series. The WWAF mixes the swag of Ric Flair with the skill of Bob Ross. Artist must dress up in character and talk trash then paint against each other in a competitive art competition. The winner like in wrestling receives a belt.

His current exhibition series, Contraption will feature, paintings, film and sculpture at Notch 8 Gallery in April 2016.

Recently, as an extension of The Contraption, he created The Merica Show, a kid show for adults, complete with puppets and animation, which the pilot will premiere in November 2015.
