Bruce Lieberman

Water Mill, New York
Bruce Lieberman grew up in the suburbs of Long Island, before they really became the suburbs. Deeply rooted in the New York Figurative art world, Lieberman began to show on the Lower East Side. Living on the east end since the 70's, surfing in Montauk in the morning and at New York openings in the evening his work became a joyous ode to living.
