George Condo has a recognizable style. In his paintings you will find "broken portraits" in the style of artificial realism, as the artist himself called it.

"Artificial realism is a realistic representation of what is artificial."

At other times, he speaks of his style as psychological cubism. The original portraits of one of America's most prominent artists reflect contemporary social morals. It's like looking into the mirror, which alone can reveal the truth.

The artist is tied with many famous names

Born in 1957 in Concord, New Hampshire, he studied the history of art and musical theory at the Unversity of Massachusetts in Lowell. In the late 1970s, he was a member of the band The Girls, but the world knows him as a prominent American artist.

He began to exhibit his luxury paintings, hybrid faces, in the 1980s. When visiting New York he met Michel Basquiat, who suggested that he move to the creative city and fully devote himself to his artistic career. He worked for some time in the famous Andy Warhol factory and moved to Paris in 1985. He became friends with writer William S. Burroughs and philosopher Felix Guattari, who wrote a large work on his art.
