Andrew Masullo is often described as ‘a painter’s painter’. His vibrant canvases might be small but they really do burst with a charming energy. Through his work, Masullo is interested in form, colour and composition and he has a real talent for striping these down to their purest elements and turning them into deceptively simple looking work. His skill for painting strange organic shapes is wonderful to see and the playful nature of what he creates is an absolute joy.
Born in New Jersey, Masullo studied at Rutgers and found success exhibiting in the East Villliage during the early 80s. Since then he’s conitiued to exhibit up and down America, taking part in group shows and solo exhibtions. In 2012 he showed at the Whitney Museum’s 2012 Biennial.
