About us

 Leonard Goldstein

 

 

 

Inspired by the “giants” of art since early childhood, I have set out to discover the common denomination that ties all art together – call it a “unified theory of art”.  Currently, I love Impressionism and its connection to science: the perfect meeting of the subjective and objective, spirit and matter if you will.

I grew up in New York City and graduated from the High School of Art and Design.  I attended Eastern New Mexico University and the University of New Mexico.  There, I met Robert Creeley (poet) and John Chamberlain (sculptor), the latter encouraging me to move to New York City as his assistant (1967).  It was there I met many of the leading artists of the day: Dali, Warhol, Johns, Kasumi to name a few.

My clothing designs have appeared in Vogue magazine (1968), dubbed the “peasant look”.  My paintings are in public and private collections in the US, Japan, Russia, New Zealand and Italy.  A seven-time Artslant showcase winner and have received grants from both the Gottlieb and Rauschenberg Foundations.

I have been featured in the SoHo Memory Project (NYC), Stateside Magazine, Ourventura interview.  Locally I have appeared on Artwave (KHSU), lectured at the Morris Graves Museum, College of the Redwoods, showed at The Black Faun Gallery and appeared on Dave Silverbrand’s “Help Yourself”.
