This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2005, is from the artist.

Art Donovan is considered to be "one of the most influencial artists working with light in the past 20 years." (Linda Longo, Editor in Chief, Home Lighting Art, August,2001.)

Art Donovan has lived in New York and been a professional, full-time artist and designer since 1976.  His disciplines include sculpture, painting, photography and art-furniture design, and among his mediums are hardwood, spun filament fiberglass, steel, bronze and acrylic.

In 1980, his interest in three-dimensional work occurred when he became the senior designer and head illustrator for Donald Deskey Associates, New York City.  (Deskey was the designer of Radio City Music Hall in New York, and through long talks about the Golden Age of American Deco, Donovan absorbed the philosophies and practice of this style of expression directly from Deskey, one of the great acknowledged American Masters of this style of art).
M.G. Lord in Preservation Magazine say's that "Donovan's diverse resume in the visual arts have prepared him for almost any challenge. He has mastered the art of visualizing concepts, that is, to mesh Idea and Word with Visual Imagery."
Donovan specializes in three dimensional, illuminated Art and lives in Southampton New York with his wife and design, partner, Leslie Tarbell Donovan.    

Exhibition venues include the Artists Alliance of East Hampton, of which he is also a member.
