New Inspirations in New York: 1983 – 1992

In 1983, Matt Baumgardner moved to New York City to further his artistic career. Initially living in squalor in a cold-water flat with 2 other artists in Brooklyn before relocating to Lower Manhattan, he soon began exhibiting frequently in both solo and group exhibitions. This was during the beginning of New York’s art boom of the 1980s. Baumgardner’s Neo-Expressionist work, with bright colors and bold angular gestures, was in tune with the times. As a result, it was a very successful period for him.
