Billy Sullivan

Born in Brooklyn, Billy Sullivan attended New York’s High School of Art and Design and then the School of Visual Arts during which time he began photographing his fellow artists, family and friends from the art, nightclub and fashion worlds. Over 30 years later, Sullivan has accumulated thousands of images that he views as a visual diary of his life, characterizing the people and things around him. From this archive he creates paintings, pastels and ink drawings, primarily portraits and still lives. Part of a downtown scene from 1968 to the present, Sullivan cites the influence of Andy Warhol on his approach to art, aesthetically and socially.
