  2. 2. Brief Bio: <ul><li>Born in October in 1951 in New York </li></ul><ul><li>Moved to Texas when he was a child </li></ul><ul><li>After earning a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Houston, Schnabel toured Europe </li></ul><ul><li>He moved back to New York and started his painting career doing several odd jobs to support himself </li></ul>
  3. 3. His Style and Art Career: <ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>His first exhibition was at the Mary Boone Gallery in 1980. It launched him into the New York art scene. </li></ul><ul><li>He gathered a following for his emotion-filled unusual works. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul><ul><li>Schnabel's signature works, both abstract and figurative, have a base surface either black velvet or broken pottery (most common were ceramic plates). </li></ul><ul><li>His paintings were filled with raw emotion, the paintings contain an underlying edge of brutality while still having a youthful energy. </li></ul><ul><li>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. </li></ul>
