This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Tal Streeter was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma in 1934.  Streeter’s family moved to
Manhattan, Kansas when he was two-years old and he went through school there graduating
from Manhattan High School in 1952.  He attended the Univ. of Kansas, earning a BFA
and MFA in Design & Sculpture and teaching there before moving to New York to initiate
his career in sculpture.  His early work showed linear steel sculptures, painted black.  The
linearity was retained during the 1970s when the work grew in scale to large, public pieces painted a distinctive deep-red color. In 1969 Streeter went to Japan to study the art of kite making.  Following his return to the United States two years later, he wrote the "The Art of the Japanese Kite," arguably the most influential book about kites ever published in English.  He was a professor at the State Univ. of New York, Purchase in the Sculpture/IIID/ Media area. Streeter has traveled the world over, searching out kite lore. He is the first fine artist to give himself wholeheartedly to the making, flying and exhibition of kites in museums and art galleries, championing this medium as an art form. In 2009, he lived in Santa Fe, NM and upstate New York—and frequently returned to his hometown of Manhattan.
