Willie Jimenez, visual artist


Native NYC Artist and navy vet. Recently graduated College with honors and awards. just spent the Summer doing a residency at the New York academy of art. Thanks to a merit scholarship. I recently had my first piece in a non-student show.  After years of working as an illustrator. decided to join the navy in order to be able to go back to school. In college I put my digital skills aside to do more traditional mediums like painting and sculpture. Now that I graduated I’m still figuring out how I’m going to turn this into a career.  


TAP Work:

I got to do a few posters for equality and against censorship. The group decided on unity and positive activism. So I came up with a couple of ideas showing artists without borders & artists without limits.
