Stan Solomon was born in New York City in 1946. He honed his natural artistic talents at the New York Institute of Technology and the Brooks Institute of Photography. After graduating from Brooks in 1976, he taught photography at Every Woman’s Village while working as a freelance photographer. Solomon developed his painting skills autodidactically and has created a unique style of art that is intriguing as well as somehow familiar. Termed “neo-geo” (based on the neo-geometric or neo-minimalist art movements), Solomon’s work is full of abstract or composite images of space-scapes, cityscapes, cars, carousel horses, geometric shapes, and other whimsical images. Using energetic colors and vivid shapes on details and complex backgrounds, his bold paintings draw the viewer in every time.
