Billy Sullivan has been making paintings and drawings of his friends and his surroundings since the 1970’s. The bohemian glamour of his still life’s and the casual intimacy of his portraits distinguishes him as a New York artist. In all of the work, we are comfortable in the company of the artist.
Born in New York, NY, Billy Sullivan attended the High School of Art and Design and received a BFA at the School of Visual Arts. He divides his time between studios in New York and East Hampton. He has exhibited internationally and is included in the prestigious collections of institutions and museums including the Detroit Institute of Art, New Orleans Museum of Art, The General Electric Company, Dow Jones Company and The Museum of Modern Art.
