Nicole Eisenman

Nicole Eisenman (American, b. 1965) is a Contemporary painter, printmaker, and sculptor, with a wide body of figurative and often humorous work. Inspired by Social Realism and German Expressionism, Eisenman frequently mines art history for her imagery, both satirizing the bourgeois and imbuing them with pathos. Her work is also autobiographical, laced with personal history and sometimes featuring stand-ins for herself or her friends.

Born in Verdun, France, she grew up in Scarsdale, NY. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design and graduated in 1987 with a BFA. Eisenman’s first exhibition was in 1990 at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art in Staten Island, NY. Her work was included in the 2019 Venice Biennale, 2019 Whitney Biennial, and 2017 Skulptur Projekte Münster in Münster, Germany. Having established herself as a painter, Nicole Eisenman has expanded her practice into the third dimension.

Eisenman currently lives and works in New York.
