Williams Chechet is a multi talented designer, illustrator and muralist with a string of globally acclaimed contemporary art pieces to his name. Born and raised in Kaduna, Northern Nigeria, Williams studied Industrial Design at the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria and his Northern heritage is very evident in his recent works.
His latest art project, We Are The North, is a series of beautiful illustrations from Northern Nigeria, influenced by pop art – an art movement which involves imagery from popular culture being visually removed from its known context, isolated, and/or combined with unrelated material. This series was recently shown in collaboration with the Alliance de Francais, Lagos to much acclaim.
Williams strongly believes that art has the power to heal, inspire and bring people together and gives back to the community by inspiring younger designers to master their craft and pursue their passions in art.
