Donald Sultan’s Biography

Donald Sultan is a contemporary painter best known for his use of industrial materials to depict everyday subjects. Sultan uses recurring imagery—such as flowers, dominoes, and horses—to create colorful still lifes framed by tar-black backgrounds, combining a Minimalist aesthetic of few colors and geometric shapes. Sultan was born on May 5, 1952 in Asheville, NC and moved to New York in 1975, becoming a part of the New Image movement along with fellow painters Susan Rothenberg and Julian Schnabel. In addition to his paintings, Sultan has collaborated with the Pulitzer-prize winning playwright David Mamet on the illustrated novel Bar Mitzvah (1999). He has shown in galleries all over the world, including The Museum of Modern Art in New York, Tate Modern in London, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the National Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo.”
