Born in Brooklyn and educated in Texas , Julian Schnabel rose to prominence as a painter in the 1980s after his first exhibition at the Mary Boone Gallery in New York City . Since then, Schnabel’s work, including his signature large-scale neo-expressionistic and collage works, has been exhibited all over the world. His paintings, sculptures and works on paper have been the subject of retrospective exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; The Whitechapel Gallery, London; The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; The Tate Gallery, London; and The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. Schnabel lives with his wife Olatz Lopez Garmendia, who plays Marie in The Diving Bell And The Butterfly, and their family in New York City and Montauk, New York , and San Sebastian , Spain . Schnabel’s assertion that he’s "aiming at an emotional state, a state that people can literally walk into and be engulfed by" is equally applicable to his emotionally energetic paintings and his vividly beautiful films.
