There he exhibited very early on his artistic touch. Then after seeing his work, he was sent to an arts school for proper training. For his earning, he designed labels for jars of jams and preservatives.

A.William’s paintings were very realistic. Their subjects usually revolved around women of the pagan and classical genre. His style was that he drew photo realistic paintings but showed a much idealized world.
