Bill Davis


CalArts graduate, Bill Davis, has had a life-long love for surfing, Bill believes immersion in the surfing culture measurably affected his imagery and palette. He’s been creating art, in one form or another, all his life.

Davis has worked in just about every creative commercial visual field. While working in the graphic arts department at NBC, he spent his time body painting go-go dancers for Laugh-In, creating over 200 pieces of More to Come art for The Tonight Show, Starring Johnny Carson and designing The Gong Show logo, among countless other projects. Davis has received numerous awards and among them, a national primetime Emmy award.

In 1991, he began to create fine art works under the alias Trowzers Akimbo. He wanted to avoid confusion with the myriad other Bill Davis’ out there painting. He’s yet to run into another artist named Trowzers Akimbo.
