My name is Billy. I am from Brooklyn, NY, where the arts have always been an integrated part of my childhood. I am currently a senior in high school. My interest came from the many museum trips I took in elementary school. Youth Insights offers me the opportunity to have conversations and to learn more about art with other teens. Besides regularly attending museums, my hobbies include music, running, swimming, and photography. Several of my favorite artists and greatest inspirations are George Condo, Ryan McGinley, Juergen Teller, and Marcel Dzama. Art is an escape from reality for me. I love that it allows me to step into the shoes and take on the viewpoint of the artist, especially for pieces with a political or social context. In the future, I hope to become an art curator and be able to work with many people in the field on a daily basis!
