Julian Schnabel Julian Schnabel Presentation Transcript

  • Modern Mondays: Julian Schnabel By: Casey Levine
  • Brief Bio:
    • Born in October in 1951 in New York
    • Moved to Texas when he was a child
    • After earning a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Houston, Schnabel toured Europe
    • He moved back to New York and started his painting career doing several odd jobs to support himself
  • His Style and Art Career:
    • Enormous canvases filled with vibrant colors and bold strokes (some of his paintings were done only with his fingers though!) sum up Schnabel's paintings.
    • His first exhibition was at the Mary Boone Gallery in 1980. It launched him into the New York art scene.
    • He gathered a following for his emotion-filled unusual works.
    • By the time he exhibited his work in a show jointly organized by Boone and Leo Castelli in 1981, he had become firmly established for his neo-expressionist paintings created on unique surfaces.
    • Schnabel's signature works, both abstract and figurative, have a base surface either black velvet or broken pottery (most common were ceramic plates).
    • His paintings were filled with raw emotion, the paintings contain an underlying edge of brutality while still having a youthful energy.
    • The monstrous canvases have elements of collage, but his arrival as an artist signified the return of painting to an art scene that previously revolved around conceptual and minimalist art.
  • Some Of His Works:
  • His Character and movie making career
    • He was considered heroic, with his charismatic and somewhat eccentric personality-he worked and even went to his exhibitions in pajamas, slippers, and robe.
    • He made several movies, the most fasmous being ‘The Diving Bell and The Butterfly’ for which he won an award.
