Photo de profil de RickProl.
Rick Prol est né en 1956 à New York, où il vit et travaille aujourd’hui. Il entre dans la vie artistique à la toute fin dans années 1970, face au paysage urbain du Lower East Side pleine d’insécurité, de vide, avec une violence quotidienne. Ses oeuvres reflètent cette espace psychique, peuplé de figures et d’animaux tordus. Il est diplômé de Cooper Union en 1980. Des études récentes de son travail ont été présentées à l'Ohio State University, Columbus, OH et au Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art, Peekskill, NY. Il a présenté des expositions personnelles avec Hal Bromm, B-Side Gallery, Willoughby Sharp et Andrew Kreps à New York ; Barbara Farber à Amsterdam; et la galerie Leeahn en Corée du Sud ; et a été inclus dans des expositions collectives à Artists Space et PS1, entre autres. Le travail de Prol fait partie des collections du Museum of Modern Art, du Stedelijk Museum, du Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, du Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, du Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, du Holocaust Museum et des Smithsonian Libraries.
