Mariyah Sultan

About Artist
Mariyah Sultan, presently showing in galleries in New York, Miami's Art District, Key West and Atlanta, is an emerging artistic force and her work is collected internationally. Sultan will be exhibiting during Art Basil - Miami for the fourth time in the 2017 / 2018 showing. Her work has been used on the sets of HBO, CBS, CW and Nickelodeon. Sultan has recently been named Curator of Art at CBS in New York and her work has hung in the corporate headquarters.

Sultan's connection to the New York School of Abstract Expressionists and the Cobra Movement has caused her to push the envelope of immediate expression within the context of the complexity of the current atmospheric condition and culture she finds herself in. With unabashed freedom, Sultan incorporates brilliant splashes of rich color, flat planes, the subtle variance of textured grays, small elegant childlike lines that read as a language, a forceful linear structure, and the beauty of the female anatomy as the elemental potency of her paintings and drawings. "I prefer the displacement of space, conceptually like writing on a wall. I am obsessed with rich color and for me this is a journey unto itself." Mariyah Sulatan has won several awards and is a 2-time winner of the best of the Arts Students League of New York. In 2015, Mariyah Sultan had a one-woman show at the Sechrest Gallery in North Carolina's prestigious High Point University, where she has also lectured on contemporary art.
