Donald Sultan, a prominent contemporary American artist, was raised in Asheville, North Carolina and gained notoriety in the 1980s for his large-scale still-life paintings that juxtaposed industrial materials such as floor tiles, spackle and tar, with organic forms that mostly included fruits and flowers. He earned a BFA from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and immediately went on to complete an MFA from the School of Art Institute of Chicago in 1975. He then moved directly to New York where he currently lives and works. His first one man show came in 1977 at the Artists Space and he has gone on to have numerous exhibitions at prominent institutions around the world, and was recognized with a 1980–1981 National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship. His work resides in many permanent collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, among others.
