Taro Suzuki has lived an artist's life in New York City for longer than most. As is true of many creatives immersed in the Metropolis, Suzuki's artistic energy emerged in multiple disciplines over the course of his development. While he was lead singer for the No Wave band "Youthinasia," he gained notoriety for his light installations. Harnessing the power of questions and contrasts in traditional optics, he has used painting and sculpture to further pursue his interest in visual dissonance. A two time Pollack-Krasner Grant recipient, Taro Suzuki works have been exhibited at MoMA, NY and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, NY.
