Some may say that William Levenberg, a.k.a Gotharts Billy Levenberg, has a very different way of viewing the chaotic world around him. He infuses philosophy and bleak imagery in various mediums/medias, such as paintings, photography, graphic arts/design, poetry, and music. Deeply influenced by his education at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan, Gotharts majored in Forensic Psychology and minored in Gender Studies and Art. Gotharts questions traditional gender roles, objectification of women, bias towards immigrants and minorities, elitism, and exclusiveness which is reflected in his art. He is a feminist, an ally to the LGTBQ community, and abhors injustice towards anyone anywhere. Both his life and art revolve around transgenderism, trans-phobia and gender neutrality, as well as the current state of the human condition. Henry David Thoreau, Andy Warhol, Nan goldin, Cindy Sherman, And Dali have all greatly inspired the eccentric, yet creative, Gotharts propelling him to become one of Long Island's fresh and emerging artists.
