William Hessian is known to many as The Canvas Killer and as Mr. Art Hunt, and his students know him as Mr. Billy.

One of William's creations is Canvas Kill Live. This is an art form in which the artist creates and "kills" an art piece during a performance. Some of the implements he has been known to use are blenders, swords, and knives.

William also does Miniature Art Hunts on a national level, inviting communities to find his hidden artwork and win prizes.

"art must create the future" 

William often tells his students, "there are no wrong answers in art," and therefore the results are limitless.
