William Okaily is a Studio Arts graduate from the American University of Beirut and a current Maryland Institute College of Art MFA candidate. Based on his interest in and exposure to the arts, he initially sought out his degree as it would allow him to explore performance in relation to different forms like installation or video. However, his interest spread to the practices of painting and sculpture. Throughout his studies, he found immense interest in research in the arts. He also pursued a minor in media and communication which allowed him to enlarge his perspective of the world and invoked new ideas and questions to tackle in his work. William’s practice involves a lot of experimentation and research while focusing on questioning the medium, always pushing it to its limits and investigating it more closely. By questioning the form, he is starting to deconstruct the way he used to perceive and understand art, thus allowing more fluidity in his exploration of it.
