This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A sculptor and art educator, John Newman is known for his large-scale installations, many of them in outdoor settings such as at the General Mills Outdoor Sculpture Park in Minnespolis; the Department of Transportation in Washington DC; and the Storm King Art Center in Mountainville, New York.

In a 2005 exhibition catalogue of Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery in Lincoln, Nebraska, Janice Dreisbach, Gallery Director, wrote that many of his works are "intimate tabletop objects that consist of surrealistic and biomorphic shapes and forms made of fragile materials, such as glass, papier mache, gilded paper and terra cotta.  Their small scale, graceful curves, vibrant colors, and complex and diverse textures give them an intimate and seductive quality that is intensified by their fragility.  Newman's aesthetic also bears the influence of Alexander Calder, Lee Bontecou, Eva Hesse, and the Italian Neo-Dada Artists of arte povera.  Newman travels widely throughout Asia and Africa, and he is deeply influenced by non-western art-making methods and concepts." (12)

Newman was born in Flushing, New York.  He earned a BA Degree from Oberlin College in 1972; and an MFA from the Yale School of Fine Art in 1975.   In 1972, he was a part of the Whitney Museum's Independent Study Program, and from 1980 to 1982, was Assistant Professor of Fine Art at Queens College, New York.  From 1981 to 1984, he was Assistant Professor of Fine Art at Sarah Lawrence College; and from 1992 has been Director of Graduate Studies in Sculpture at the Yale School of Fine Art.

John Newman lives in New York City.
