b. Concord, New Hampshire 1957
George Condo is an American contemporary visual artist currently living and working in New York City. The artist’s work, primarily in the mediums of painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking, is populated by a cast of characters whose bulging eyes, bulbous cheeks, proliferating limbs and hideous bites set them apart as a singular species. Condo absorbs a vast range of art-historical sources, creating at the same time a pictorial language characteristically his own. Condo's work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Whitney Museum, New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Albright-Knox Museum in Buffalo, New York, the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., and the Broad Foundation, Los Angeles, among other American and European museums and public collections.
