Billy Bungo resides in the quiet town of Montclair, New Jersey. He is an accomplished musician, a Priest of Ifa, and an amazing wood carver. When he is not playing music (he plays over 20 instruments) or doing spiritual work, you will find him quietly working on his wood carvings. Born and raised in Montclair, New Jersey, Billy Bungo lived in Nigeria for many years. This is reflected in both his music and his carvings.
I met Billy Bungo about 15 years ago. I am very familiar with his music (which I will post and share at a later date). I only recently discovered his work as an artist and his passion for creating these beautiful pieces of art. They are quite breath taking and I was taken aback when he shared his carvings with me. Billy Bungo brought a piece of Africa back with him and he puts a piece of Africa into each of his creations.
These pictures are of a select few, he has many pieces and no two are alike. Billy Bungo’s work is for sale, if you are interested please email me for his contact information.
