Willie Zin

Long Beach, CA

William Zin graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art, in Illustration in 1990 but never really pursued his art career. Instead, he went to work for a logistics/freight forwarding company, which he enjoys thoroughly. His life changed when William suffered a Heart Attack in 2007. He went through three months of recovery and during his recovery time he rediscovered the art again. He felt it was his second chance to enjoy life and do what he loved most – art. Willie enjoys street painting because of the interaction he can have with people walking by while performing.
“People are always amazed of what we do and feel bad that the images will be washed away. It’s fine. This is a temporary art and the joy is the moment while creating them.”
