George Condo is an American artist and one of the most important figures in the Neo-expressionist movement. Born in 1957 in Concord, New Hampshire, he was raised in a middle-class family. He developed an interest in painting at an early age and began studying art at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in 1975. In 1977, Condo moved to New York City to pursue his career as an artist. He was exposed to a variety of artistic styles and movements, and was particularly influenced by the works of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Philip Guston, and Francis Bacon. His early works, which often combined elements of painting, sculpture, and drawing, were featured in several group exhibitions at the time. In the 1980s, Condo began to develop his own distinct style, which he described as "artificial realism." He often used a combination of abstract and figurative elements in his work, a technique he referred to as "abstract figuration." His works often featured distorted, cartoon-like images of figures in a variety of surreal settings.


Condo's works have been featured in solo and group exhibitions around the world, and his works are included in the permanent collections of leading museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. In addition to painting, Condo has also experimented with music and fashion design. He has released several albums of electronic music and collaborated with fashion designer Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and Adidas on a series of limited edition shoes. Condo continues to create works of art and experiment with different styles and media. He lives and works in New York City and Honfleur, France.
