DAVID KRAMER (b. 1963) Inspired by vintage magazines and the portrayal of seductive characters within them, Brooklyn native David Kramer juxtaposes paint with humorous and reflective text to create glimpses of the ever-elusive good life. Or, as Kramer thought as a younger man, “what life was going to be like soon.” Kramer’s combination of artistic talent and sharp wit has garnered ample national and international attention. The recipient of fellowships from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New York Foundation for the Arts (among others), Kramer has had solo exhibits on three continents and in seven countries; his works have been exhibited at the world’s preeminent contemporary art fairs including Art Basel and the New York Armory (where he had a solo exhibit in 2013). Kramer’s works are represented by several stellar galleries worldwide, including: Galerie Laurent Godin (Paris), Galerie Tanit (Munich, Beirut), Aeroplastics Contemporary (Brussels), and Katharine Mulherin (Toronto, New York).
