Gowanus Print Lab is pleased to announce Beginning’s End, a solo exhibition of the NYC based artist, Albert Leon Sultan.
Beginning’s End features 10 new large scale paintings that chronicles Albert Leon Sultan’s journey into understanding the underlying mechanics of our world. Sultan imagines a quantum flux animating the physical domain we perceive. In his paintings, Sultan suggests a reality in which the walls separating the physical from the metaphysical do no exist.
Sultan’s canvases are seeded with delightful paradoxes that coexist harmoniously. He seamlessly depicts worlds where time speeds up and slows down, where the ancient and the future flirt. He uses colors and textures to create a playground where the possible and impossible collide, dance, merge and separate.
Sultan’s paintings serve as a bridge between the seen and the unseen exposing the gears that move our existence. Sultan’s work energetically peels back the layers of human perception. What remains to be seen is both inspirational and revealing.
Albert Leon Sultan is a multidisciplinary artist and designer living and working in NYC. He is a graduate from the prestigious University of Pennsylvania. He further studied drawing and painting with internationally renowned artist Israel Hershberg at the Jerusalem Studio School. In the ensuing years Sultan has distinguished himself in New York City’s competitive design community. His list of creative collaborations crosses over into the art, fashion, interior design and Broadway worlds. His furniture and interior designs have been featured in some of the nations leading publications including NY Spaces, Domino Magazine, House & Garden, Luxe, V&M Inc, Wall Street Journal, and NJ Monthly. Sultan’s paintings exhibit the same bold color and design sensibility that made his furniture pieces such a national sensation. Sultan ended off 2015 on a high note with his painting “The March of Time” selected as one of the year’s top ten pieces by The Huffington Post’s John Seed. His consistently unusual sense of style makes him an emerging artist to watch.
