Artist of the moment……Andrew Masullo

Andrew Masullo is an American abstract artist born in Elizabeth, New Jersey in the year 1957. For his artistic education Masullo attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey.  The artist originally started out as a language major, but then switched his focus of study to the visual arts.

Started off making collages and assemblages with found objects. His work from this time period is compared to Joseph Cornell, who has been profiled here previously.

In the 1990s he moved to his version of lost abstraction. He might work years on a canvas before finishing it.

Winner of a Pollack- Krosner grant to further his study of abstract art.

Winner of a Guggenheim fellowship.

Included in the collection of the New York public library.

Started exhibiting in 1983.

price range information: Works range from $4,000 to $30,000.

Doesn’t enjoy being called an artist as everyone is an artist these days.

And here we go to a show featuring Masullo with our beloved James Kalm! This show is from 2013.

A great interview with the artist at the Whitney Biennale. He was included in the 2012 Biennale and talks about the difference between abstract and non-objective art.

And here we visit a show featuring Andrew Masullo with James Kalm. The show took place in 2010.
