Donald Sultan’s large-scale still-life paintings feature semi-abstract compositions and unique materials: The artist has used tar, spackle, enamel, Masonite, and vinyl floor tiles to create his minimalist renderings of flowers, fruits, and other natural forms. Sultan received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he began to experiment with non-traditional painting methods. He has exhibited in New York, London, Paris, Chicago, Tokyo, and Berlin, among other cities. Sultan’s work belongs in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate, the Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, among others. Sultan is also well known for his prints and sculptures, which embrace the same motifs as his paintings.
