“Trumpeter” by LaVon Williams is a large scale, handcrafted painted wood sculpture. Bands of copper and decorative nailheads add additional dimension and texture to this sculpture. A dark cherry red finish stains the trumpeter’s uniform, accented with glossy black.
About the Artist:
LaVon Williams was born to a creative household in Sanford, Florida. He was recruited to the University of Kentucky for basketball, playing professionally in the UK and Japan after graduation. Years later, he decided to pursue art school, where he was mistreated by a professor who insisted that black artists did not have a place in the art world. He left school discouraged, reigniting his artistic flame years later thanks to his mother and former professors. Using a hammer and chisel, Williams emulates the jazz music that flowed through his childhood home to create sculptural works with emotive vibrations.
This sculpture is just one of hundreds of pieces of art that are available at our location in Grandview! Come in today and see the full collection.
