Lawrence Fodor was born in Los Angeles, CA & started painting at an early age. He studied painting, printmaking & art history at Orange Coast College & received a BFA in printmaking & did graduate work in painting at Otis Art Institute in Los Angeles. Currently living & working in Los Angeles, CA & Santa Fe, NM, he has traveled the world extensively. In addition to a successful career as a painter (his "...best means of communication."), Fodor has collaborated with artists as a master printmaker at two experimental print workshops he founded, curates visual art exhibitions, pursues photography & loves making/designing books. His painting falls in the realm of nature based abstraction & recent "revisions" of historic works of figurative art. He works with oil paint & alkyd resin on canvas, paper & wood cigar boxes & watercolor on paper. His work is collected & has been exhibited by the Lannan Foundation, New Mexico Museum of Art, Laguna Art Museum & Museum of Modern Art in Fort Worth.
