David Shapiro

About Artist: David Shapiro (1944-2014) David Shapiro was born in Brooklyn, New York. He received his artistic training at the Pratt Institute and the Skowhegan School of Art. Shapiro’s paintings explore a dialogue between materiality and the ethereal using a complex vocabulary of perennial signs and symbols. Typically working in formats of two, four or six sections, Shapiro seeks to create a visual harmony out of disparate means and materials. His study of Buddhist thought and practice has greatly influenced the aesthetic qualities of his work. Early in his career, Shapiro also began exploring the possibilities of printing. He has produced over fifty editions and many unique projects exploring the properties of hand made paper and fabric. Shapiro's interest in exotic papers, particularly Japanese and Indian, has led to many mixed media projects that involving drawing, painting and printing. Shapiro has had over eighty solo exhibitions in the United States, as well as in Japan, Canada, and England. He is represented in numerous private, corporate, and public collections, including the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, Washington D.C.; and the Aichi Prefectural Museum of Art in Nagoya, Japan.
