This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A Neo-Expressionist in New York City in the latter half of the 20th century, David Salle created paintings that juxtaposed seemingly unrelated images, often sexually oriented, from mass media. He has earned the reputation as one of America's premier figurative artists, incorporating many images including film noir, theater, and erotic reverie into an assemblage of different psyches, moods and genres.

He was born in Norman, Oklahoma, and earned a BFA and MFA from the California Institute for the Arts where he studied under John Baldessari whose terse imagery much influenced Salle.

He had his first solo exhibition at age 23 in Los Angeles. His work was in the 1993 Venice Biennale and in major retrospectives of the Whitney Museum. He lives and paints in New York City and Bridgehampton.
