Bill Amundson

Bill Amundson draws upon the unpredictable and erratic conditions of contemporary life for inspiration in creating his detailed pencil drawings. Modern culture is reflected in his humorous portraits, landscapes and interiors by means of familiar political and celebrity figures, chain restaurants and box stores, and well-known brands. He also enjoys incorporating indirect references to art history into his drawings.

A Wisconsin native, Amundson earned his bachelor’s degree in art from UW-Madison and made a name for himself as an artist while living in Colorado for 35 years.

Drawings by Amundson have been exhibited throughout the U.S. and Canada, including solo shows in New York City, Philadelphia, Toronto, Los Angeles, Austin, San Antonio, Phoenix, Colorado Springs, and Denver. The permanent collections of the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the University of Colorado Art Museum, and the Denver Art Museum include pieces of his artwork.
