Paintings by Bill A. Dallas
Bill A. Dallas is an abstract painter who was born in Kansas City, Missouri, and currently resides and works in Oakland, CA. He grew up surrounded by music – Kansas City Blues and Jazz. His paintings are based on his emotional, political and musical responses to life. “All my experiences, collected thoughts, Jazz music, and wisdom of those whom I’ve been privileged to share time with are incorporated in my art.” Dallas states “…the divine principle of abstract painting is to be in a constant state of enlightenment.” He coined the term ‘Artmatism’ to encompass Abstract Expressionism with his approach of “painting music.”
