Learn more about Donald Sultan at this Budapest art hotel
Born in 1951, Donald Sultan grew up as the son of a tyre dealer in Asheville, North Carolina. After completing his studies while living in Chicago, Sultan moved to New York to start his career as an artist. In those days, young artists were often advised not to get involved in painting, purportedly an outmoded form of representation.

Defiantly, Sultan still chose to paint, and he became involved in the ongoing controversy surrounding the art form. A group of abstract expressionists headed by Jackson Pollock advocated personal and spontaneous painting; another group, known as minimalists, believed painting had to do with canvas and colour, and could not refer to things beyond them.

Within this field of tension, Donald Sultan began to forge his own way, searching for opportunities to combine the demands of the minimalists with traditional painting. In off-the-shelf linoleum tiles, he discovered a material that was congenial to the realisation of his ideas. He abandoned the traditional canvas, glued the standard-sized tiles to plywood, covered them with a layer of tar, cut forms out of this tough black mass, and filled those forms with colour.

In the collection at art'otel budapest, you can see works from his three central themes: Industrial, Natural and Artificial.
