Biography

Bill Blast (whose real name is William Cordero), was born in 1964 in New York, where he works and lives today. He grew up in NY, and the city is the surce of his inspiration.

It is by going to museums, art galleries and by reading that he got the artistic energy that symbolizes his work. Passionate by art, he studied at the School of Visual Arts and then at the Parsons School of Design. Later, he would put his studies to the benefit of disadvantaged children.

Blast is famous for his legendary murals, such as "Sky's the Limit" and "Eye of the Tiger" (reproduced in Henry Chalfant and James Prigoff?s Spraycan Art) produced in 1982. After having taking risks by tagging metro trains or walls, Bill Blast switched to another support: the canvas. He discovered this way another way of working.

In 1978, he was the musical director of the Antonio Lopez studio and then a designer and consultant for the film Beat Street (1984) directed by Harry Belafonie. William is inhabited by the Hip-hop culture of the late twentieth century and each new work also represents a new song.
