Born in San Francisco, William Scott has developed his artistic practice while working at Creative Growth, an art centre where people with developmental disabilities are given the opportunity to work and advance creatively as artists. His own colourful works take inspiration from popular culture, combining text and image in highly detailed paintings, drawings, and sculptures. He explores the intersections of community, cultural memory, faith, and science fiction as he reimagines the social topography of his native city. Covering the last 30 years of Scott’s practice, this monograph offers a comprehensive selection of works plus unique insight on his creative and transformative approach.
