Bold and minimal, Donald Sultan's Five Lime Greens reduces the form of the poppy and represents it in monochrome with black contrast.
Sultan is recognized for his large-scale paintings, categorized as either artificial, industrial, or natural. His natural images are representational, using recognizable objects such as lemons, eggs, playing cards, or his signature poppies, yet abstract, presented in a slightly blurred or distorted way. In his industrial pieces, Sultan uses mixed-media such as tar, enamel, spackle, and vinyl tiles. The artificial works, in pop-art fashion, have bright colors and patterns, reminiscent of Andy Warhol or Damien Hirst.
Born in Asheville, NC, Sultan received his BFA at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and continued his studies earning an MFA at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. Sultan's work is featured extensively in various collections, both throughout the United States and internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Sultan is also a printmaker and sculptor.
