Artist Profile


Loren Munk

b. 1951 Salt Lake City, UT / Lives Works Brooklyn NY / Art Students League

painting

Loren Munk's dense, complex paintings map and flowchart modern and contemporary art history; the art history that happened and is happening in his NYC backyard (and which Munk also famously and epically video-documents under the pseudonym James Kalm); but also art history across greater spans of time and space (the California scene, the Puteaux Group). His paintings have their roots in text-based street art the artist was making (and getting arrested for) in New York in the early 1980s.  (In photo: Loren with wife Kate.)
