The Art of Billy Dee Williams 

An Internationally recognized Visual Artist who was offered art scholarships long before his notable film career began.  It was as a young art student that he  followed his love of acting in order to purchase art supplies.  Billy uses a deep and intense pallet and his work is characterized by it's diversely expressionistic  quality.  Billy Dee grew up in Harlem to a family that encouraged all of his artistic abilities. .As Honorary Chairman of The​ Thelonious Monk Institute his love of Jazz and Music is evident in his work. His work included in permanent collections of The Schomburg Center for research and Black Culture, The Smithsonian National Gallery in Washington, DC. New Orleans and Kansas City American Museums of Jazz (Partial List).

Private collectors include Barry Gordy, Keny G., The American Olympic Committee, Sears, Nissan and many more. Having painted in oils, Billy prefers the effects of acrylic and airbrush sometime drawing on mixed media in a uniquely Billy Dee Style.


As a Gallerist and Artist I and my staff at Diana Shannon Young Fine Art are humbled and honored to offer the Original Work of the Iconic Billy Dee Williams to our collectors.
