Artist George Schulman also presented his fine art and you can see more of his collection at the Lawrence Fine Art Gallery in East Hampton.

George Schulman's wildly exuberant, colorful and kinetic paintings take the viewer on a roller coaster ride in and out of the pictorial plane. Viewed from one perspective, they look like Candy Land-like maps of a fantasy place.

Their inspiration and construction come from a variety of places.  Schulman is the son of a seamstress and tailor, and his forms seem to mimic zippers, buttons and the detritus of a NYC sweat shop. Artistic inspiration includes Valazquez, Seurat, of course Matisse,  long-time mentor and colleauge Knox Martin but also the many Street artists Schulman got to know in the 80s and 90s.

Lawrence Fine Art featured Schulman's art as part of its "New Voices" exhibition, July 2015.

Schulman lives and works on Long Island, New York.

Lawrence Fine Art was established by Howard Shapiro

After 20 years on Wall Street and nearly as long as a collector, Howard Shapiro decided to make a business out of his passion for fine art. His goal is to place quality, well-priced works of American and International art in the hands of discerning collectors and homeowners. He generally focuses on American Impressionism, tonalism, early modernism and WPA, as well as select international movements such as L'ecole de Paris or Latin American surrealism. He works with collectors and decorators. He also provides art consultation services, framing, conservation and restoration services.

Mr. Shapiro is a graduate of Yale University, cum laude. He worked for, among others, Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan.
