Billy is the creation of the artist Daniel White. He is autobiographical, the artist in paint form. Billy is the boy of the artist and through his work he relives personal narratives and personal memories. Growing up, bodies of water were a familiar setting. Often details are either enhanced or erased, similar to the way we process our own memory. Through this process, Daniel hopes to communicate with his audience in a universal way, allowing him to tell his story but inviting the viewer to connect and share their own story as well.
