Will Penny (b. 1984) was raised in Southern Ontario and currently resides in Savannah, Georgia. He received a diploma in Fine Art from Fanshawe College in London, Ontario and a BFA and MFA in Painting from The Savannah College of Art and Design, where he currently serves as adjunct Professor of Foundation Studies.
Penny’s artworks dissolve the traditional boundaries of art and design. He explores tensions between the tangible space a painting inhabits, the impact of digital technology on fabricated forms and illusionistic environments. By creating systems of interactivity with digital technologies, his art confronts the way information is generated, transmitted and received.
He has exhibited in the United States and Canada.
