i. Murphy's Paris (2004), conceived as a tribute to 21st Century Burlesque
Bill Murphy (Born October, 1946 in Hartford CT) is a noted American painter, digital artist and videographer associated with the Digital Art movement. Murphy served as a U.S. Army Green Beret Officer during the Viet Nam War. At age 40, after a successful business career, he turned artist. He is self-taught painter, digital artist and videographer. His work has been labeled "Chicago Punk" and "Post Picasso." His paintings were first published by Maxim Magazine. Murphy signs his later works as "i. Murphy."
Although Murphy started his art career as a painter, his best known works are digital compositions produced for Giclée printers.
During the 1980's and 1990s, Murphy lived in France and the former USSR. His work was influenced by the noted British landscape painter, Jeanette Leuers, and Ukrainian artist, George Piatygorets, the Father of Soviet Surrealism. With Murphy's help, formal digital art instruction began in Ukraine under the direction of Piatygorets at the legendary Lugansk Art Institute. In 1997, Murphy received the Art Pro of the Web Award. He has been a major force in the development of digital art as an accepted fine art medium. Fascinated by the efforts of American computer artists in the 1960's, many of Murphy's artistic expressions are the direct products of computer technology.
