-
Since the early 1980s Bill Blair has been creating photomontage images which play off themes of Canadiana and Mexicana, exploring ideas of 20th century romantic travel ideals, souvenir culture, and identity in North America.
His artistic practice also encompasses mixed-media assemblages and wall shrines — described by The Vancouver Sun as “dashboard art” — incorporating found objects and vintage guitars.
Commissions include permanent works for Chef Rick Bayless’s Xoco restaurant in Chicago, and for the Grammy Award-winning Mexican singer, Lila Downs. His work has been exhibited in Canada and internationally.
