Born in Brooklyn, New York
in the 1930's. He attended New York University and The New School.
Before the artist had established himself as a fine primitive paper,
he was a television actor. His acceptance in the art world was phenomenal.
His one-man shows sold out and soon museums included his work in
their permanent collection. A partial list includes the New York
State Historical Association, Indianapolis Museum of Fine Art, Museum
of American Folk Art, N.Y.C., Shelbourne Museum, Vermont, Museum
of American Folk Art of Arizona University, Tempe, and the Fine
Arts Commission, Scottsdale, Arizona. His biography is listed in
Anatole Jakovsky's "Peintres Naifs," a Universe Book publication
of Paris, and "Twentieth Century American Artists" written
by the curator of the Museum of American Folk Art, New York.
