Will Boone Biography

Will Boone (b. 1982, Houston, TX) is a Los Angeles-based artist who draws inspiration from a breadth of cultural and subcultural sources. These include movies, music, industrial manufacturing, conspiracy theories, and the iconographies of Houston and South Texas. Since his early days designing concert posters and T-shirts for rock bands, Boone has both reflected and subverted the tropes of DIY and lo-fi in his work. His fascination with horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), as well as the rapid, low-budget quality of their production, can be felt across his multimedia work. Boone’s sculptures and paintings, which often resemble setpieces and cinematic tableaus, are an exercise in nostalgia, highlighting the mythologies of American culture.

Boone presented his first solo show in New York at Karma in 2011 and has since shown at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (2019); Galerie Patrick Seguin, Paris (2018); David Kordansky Gallery, Los Angeles (2018); Desert X, Coachella Valley (2017); and the Rubell Family Collection, Miami, Florida (2014), among others. In 2019-2020, Boone had his first solo museum exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston. In February 2020, Boone’s sculptures were featured in the backlot of Paramount Pictures Studios as part of Frieze Projects, a special Frieze LA presentation co-curated by Rita Gonzalez, the chief curator at LACMA, and Pilar Tompkins Rivas, the director of Vincent Price Art Museum. Public collections include Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami; Rubell Family Collection, Miami; and Fundación Baruch Spinoza, Lisbon, among others.
