Wilson Souza was born in Kayyar, in Kasargod district and is an alumnus of Mahasala School of Art, Mangaluru. He has been honoured at the Konkani Janapad Utsav by the Karnataka Konkani Sahitya Academy and conferred the Sadhana Award by Emirates Konkans.
Wilson believes in creating art that inspires. His paintings have a bold theme and mostly concentrate on feminine themes capturing the interplay of nature and the female form. Wilson’s romance with feminine themes has become his trademark narrative style. It is characterized by semi abstract strokes of bold colours, rendering it with an amalgam of fantasy and reality.
