Billy was one of the first American artists to be allowed by the Chinese government to paint live in Shanghai. Philanthropic projects include work with public schools, the American Red Cross, Live On NY, the Fresh Air Fund, Covenant House, St. Mary’s Foundation for Children, the JCC of Manhattan, and the Breathe Foundation Brazil.

A longtime fixture of the East Village, listen to what Billy has to say about working in New York, what creating art means to him, and his approach to being creative. Stick around for his Danica Patrick story.

Our interview was conducted at The Lambs. After we wrapped, Billy got on the Steinway grand and tickled the ivories for us. Follow Billy on his website, Instagram, and Facebook. His YouTube channel is amazing.
