Julian Schnabel is an American painter, sculptor and filmaker. Born: October 26, 1951, Brooklyn, N.Y. Schnabel lives in New York City and additional locations.
His abilities diverse, Julian Schnabel has been making and exploring the boundaries of his creative capabilities. “Painting is like breathing to me. It’s what I do all the time. Every day I make art, whether it is painting, writing or making a movie”. Exposed to Schnabel's unlimited view of visual creativity added to Gary’s commitment that art is an innovative exploration of the old, the new and the as yet to be imagined.
At the time of Schnabel’s emergence, Golkin was absorbed by the functioning of his business and was only sporadically involved and exposed to the current art scene. However Gary was struck by Schnabel’s reintroduction of painterly representational images.
Julian Schnabel’s expressionistic and coarse brutal imagery was a wake-up call on Gary’s cooler constructivist and nonobjective predisposition. Although still personally and artistically more humble; thanks to Schnabel, Gary adopted the freedom to add pluralistic and communicating language to his work.
Schnabel was included in this series as an artist who lets his creative juices flow and not for the imagery or painterly abstraction that characterizes his work.
