Andrew Masullo, 1957

Andrew Masullo (b. 1957, Elizabeth, New Jersey) is an American artist best known for his modestly sized, playfully cerebral abstract paintings. Masullo received his B.F.A. from Rutgers University in 1979 before moving to New York in the 1980s and beginning to exhibit as an artist. He currently lives and works in San Francisco, California. Masullo favors small, intricate works, which depict asymmetrical, slightly ‘off’ abstractions which deliberately push against viewer’s understanding of aesthetic pleasure.   Working in the philosophical tradition of non-objective painting, Masullo titles his pieces with assigned numbers, disassociating them from narrative and language.

Masullo’s paintings are held in the permanent collections of The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and New York's Whitney Museum of American Art, where he was included in its 2012 Biennial Exhibition.  Masullo has been the subject of dozens of solo exhibitions over the past four decades, including exhibitions at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery, New York (2018); Zevitas Marcus, Los Angeles, California (2016); Tibor de Nagy, New York (2015); and Mary Boone Gallery, New York (2013). He has been featured in various institutional group exhibitions, including Driving Forces: Contemporary Art from the Collection of Ann and Ron Pizzuti at the Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus, OH (2019) and Fast Forward: Painting from the 1980s, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY (2017), as well as exhibitions at the Berkeley Art Museum, Berkeley, CA; Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Overland Park, KA, and the New Britain Museum of American Art, New Britain, CT. Masullo is a 2011 recipient of a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.
