Donald Sultan (b. 1952) is a contemporary painter best known for his use of industrial materials to depict everyday subjects. Sultan uses recurring imagery--such as flowers, playing cards, and lemons--to create colorful still lifes framed by tar-black backgrounds. Born in Asheville, NC, he received his BFA from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and later his MFA from the School of the Art Institute Chicago before moving to New York in 1975. In the city, he became a part of the New Image movement along with fellow painters Susan Rothenberg and Julian Schnabel. His works are represented in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate Gallery in London, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo, among others. Sultan continues to live and work in New York, NY.
