William Daniel Buller is a Montreal-based illustrator, graphic designer and muralist. During 10 years, he is a member of the Heavyweight Art Installation, the art’s collective which toured the U.S. and Canada performing live painting installations. In 2008, he took part in the group show Manifest Hope, curated by Shepard Fairey, to support Barack Obama’s first Presidential campaign. His work appears in group exhibitions in New York, Los Angeles and Montreal. He is now a member of the art’s collective EN MASSE.
To mark the 80th anniversary of Oliver Jones (September 11th, 2014), MU celebrates the immense talent of this great Montrealer, pianist and teacher by producing a large outdoor mural in Little Burgundy where he grew up. He will now be immortalized on the wall of Habitations Albert, near the Parc des Jazzmen.
The mural is part of a series entitled Hommage aux bâtisseurs culturels montréalais initiated in 2010 to highlight the contribution of the creative minds and forces behind Montreal’s reputation as an exceptional North American city. Since the launch of this ambitious project, a series of murals have been created to pay homage to the creative talents who have made outstanding contributions to the local, national and international reach of the city’s cultural scene. MU also produced in 2011 in Little Burgundy a mural in tribute to Oscar Peterson, pianist and friend of Oliver Jones.
