Artist of the moment….. Donald Sultan

This artist was born in 1951. He is known mainly as a printmaker and for using richly colored black paints in his works. He attended art college at both the Chicago Art Institute and also University of North Carolina. The artist was born in Asheville, North Carolina.

The artists’ first solo show was in 1977. He has had works in the MOMA, the Guggenheim, New York Met, and the Whitney Museum of Art.

He also helped pen a book titled Bar Mitvah with DavidĀ  Mamet.

The artist also uses a wide array of media and techniques. Many of the flowers you see are made from woodcuts and silkscreens.

I appreciate the artist for doing something different with the same old thing.

Keep learning!
