Blair Thurman lives and works in Hudson, New York. He is known for shaped canvas and neon works; abstraction sourced from vernacular visual culture and deep historical consciousness, strongly rooted in Pop and Minimalism. Thurman’s formal content ranges from childhood toys and relics, pop songs, automobile culture, and the history of film. Starting with a concept of “less than” painting in the early ‘90s, Thurman showed with Steven Parrino and is part of a bridge of artists working between NY-PARIS-SWITZERLAND with strong ties to monochromatic painting.
Born in New Orleans in 1961, Thurman has a B.F.A. from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design (NASCAD) and an M.F.A. from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He shows with Gagosian Gallery, New York; Peres Projects, Berlin; and Galerie Frank Elbaz, Paris and Dallas; among others.
