Phoenix Artist Bill Dambrova on Painting, Star Wars, and Spirituality

What happens in the studio, shouldn't always stay in the studio. Studio Visit Q+A is a weekly series that profiles artists in their studios. We ask them questions, they provide answers, and then we have a nice discussion about their work. This week: Phoenix artist Bill Dambrova.

Artist Bill Dambrova left Phoenix for a number of years and couldn't help but return. Since coming back in 2013, his focus greatly shifted from his day job of exhibition design to his art making. His work has been in several local exhibitions throughout the past couple of years, so it's almost like he never left in the first place. "It was really easy to just plug back in," said Dambrova. Now that he's hit the ground running, we sat down in his Phoenix studio to see the beginnings of a new body of work that he's currently working on.
