Billy Sullivan is an American painter and photographer. His body of work consists of ephemeral events captured from his point of view, serving as a window into his personal life. The art historian William J. Simmons has said of Sullivan’s work, “Sullivan combines a Warholian world, wherein the archiving of life is so second-nature and immediate as to defy theorization, with an intensely rigorous excavation and recombination of past avant-gardes.” Sullivan’s diaristic tendencies evoke a sense of familiarity, with their candid subjects and expressive brushwork. Born in 1946 in Brooklyn, NY, he went on to study at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Sullivan’s works are in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, among others. Sullivan lives and works in East Hampton, NY.
