In Bahia Still Life, Billy Sullivan makes a simple breakfast platter appear intimate and interesting. Though famous for his New York images, Sullivan says he was highly influenced by European artists and his time in Paris. His deft use of color and space in his still lives is often compared to the compositions of French artists Henri Matisse and Pierre Bonnard. Vibrant and seemingly spontaneous, Sullivan's photographs serve as his visual diary and as a "floor plan" from which to create paintings.Read Less

Billy Sullivan has been rocking the New York scene since the late 60s, chronicling the flamboyant, colorful bohemian world of the artists, models, movie stars, debutantes, and partiers who have been his friends and muses. He is famous for his paintings, pastels, and photographs that are playfully, but expertly, composed to capture the exuberance and spontaneity of a moment.

"My work is a diary of my life," Sullivan explains in i-D Magazine. "I went out every night for many, many years, it seemed only natural the two would combine." His portraits and still lives seem highly personal, and they stand out for their ability to draw the viewer into the atmosphere as participants rather than observers.Read Less
