Tiger Lillies, William Basciani

The artist showed a serious interest for art when he was extremely young. William was born in 1980, a member of the 4th generation of the largest family-owned mushroom business in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania, “the mushroom capital of the world”. Basciani was mentored and instructed in art by mentor William O. Ewing. The artist perfected his skill with collegiate studies in fine arts at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. His work has been showed at select shows and galleries in the area. William Basciani, from Kennett Square, PA, paints using his own distinct style in each piece. Basciani was recently written about in book “100 artists of Brandywine” by author Catherine Quillman. The artist has been classically trained in the Brandywine tradition but has went a step further creating his own style of expression. Basciani himself claims “This is the most daring body of work, I have attempted to show at an exhibition”.
