As an artist, 70-yer-old Julian Schnabel is best known for creating very large-scale paintings on a variety of surfaces and incorporating diverse materials — including plaster, wax, photographs, antlers, velvet, and ceramics. His paintings often combine abstract and figurative elements. Due to the size, weight, and depth of his works, they’re often given sculptural properties. In addition to his artwork, Schnabel is an award-winning movie director.
Quote: “It’s a great excuse and luxury, having a job and blaming it for your inability to do your own art. When you don’t have to work, you are left with the horror of facing your own lack of imagination and your own emptiness. A devastating possibility when finally time is your own.”
