DONALD SULTAN

 

Born 1951, Asheville, North Carolina; lives in New York City

 

Since his first one-man show in 1977, Donald Sultan has enjoyed a distinguished career as painter, printmaker, and sculptor. His extensive body of work has placed him at the forefront of contemporary art, where he has been widely recognized for his ability to successfully merge the best of the classic artistic tradition with a fresh, modern approach that is unique. Sultan’s works incorporate basic geometric and organic forms with a formal purity that is both subtle and monumental. He describes his work as "heavy structure, holding fragile meaning" with the ability to "turn you off and turn you on at the same time."

 

Donald Sultan’s work is found in numerous collections including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Guggenheim Museum, New York, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Tate Modern, London, among others.
