About Wil Holman:

Will Holman is an artist and writer who just graduated from Virginia Tech with a degree in architecture.

He is living in the high Sonoran desert in the middle of Arizona, working on an experimental architecture project (www.arcosanti.org). I weld and pour concrete by day, and work on silk screen prints and furniture by night. He hopes to have new prints on the regular starting in late January or early February ’08.
