Bio & CV:
Lior Modan (born 1983, Tel-Aviv) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
His practice is in constant slippage between distinct territories: painting and object, abstraction and figuration, gestural and surreal. Modan received his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Sculpture + Extended Media program (2013), and his BFA with honors from Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel (2009).
Modan’s work has been exhibited at the Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art, Israel, Marinaro Gallery, New York, Peana Projects, Mexico, Peninsula Art Space, Brooklyn; Neiman Gallery, New York, Coustof Waxman Gallery, New York, Hometown Gallery, Brooklyn, Petach-Tikva Museum, Israel, and Haifa Museum, Israel. Recent solo exhibitions were held at Make Room, Los Angeles (2021), Triumph, Chicago (2017), Golconda Gallery, Tel Aviv (2016), and NURTUREart in Brooklyn (2015).
