William Zin (Willie) graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Illustration from Cal State Long Beach. Unable to pursuit in the arts due to financial circumstances, instead, he worked in the Freight Industry for many years till this day which naturally became his profession and career. In 2007, he suffered a heart attack. During his recuperation, he had rediscovered his love for art and was determined to live life and do what he love most. Willie entered his first chalk art event in 2009 and fell in love with this art form instantly. He loved the immediate result and the connection and interaction with the onlookers. Since, he had traveled around the US and participated over 70+ events in total. He had won several awards as well as being invited by some as a featured artist.
“Street Painting has become a part of my life and the joy is the moment while creating them”- Willie.
