William Almas began his adventure in the visual arts as a painter. His large scale portraits gave way to mixed media explorations. Faced with the daunting task of storing the fruits of his labors and with the advent of the home computer revolution William upgraded his skill set to digital imagery. This made his life simpler on his day job and offered an opportunity to see what could be done in the virtual environment. Starting by re-imagining his paintings with wild variations of saturated color Almas then moved into the realm of video production. His wild multi-layered "Retina-Burning" visuals have graced screens, walls, buildings, even shrubs in support of performers such as phog masheeen, Martin Espino, Skunk Puppet and Magic Bullet Theory.
