Billy Tackett

Born and raised in rural Kentucky, Billy Tackett began his art career 25 years ago. Over 200 of his works have been published as book and album covers, illustrations, games, etc. While illustrating, Tackett also explored other styles and mediums which is how he developed my “splatter art” technique. By dipping his fingers directly into the paint and flicking it onto the canvas he's able to capture a desired image or portrait without the use of brushes, giving his highly textured art a more fluid and organic quality.

Tackett's paintings have led to multiple exhibits, awards, and invitations across the country to showcase and demonstrate his work. The successful reception of my splatter art encouraged him to open my own working studio where he continues to create and fulfill private commissions.  His goal is to continue advancing his technique while pushing the boundaries of his creative process.
