Julian Schnabel (born 26.10.1951, Brooklyn, New York, USA)
Schnabel moved with his family to Brownsville, Texas when still young. In 1973 he received his B.F.A. at the University of Houston. After graduating, he sent an application to the independent study program at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. His application included slides of his work sandwiched between two pieces of bread; he was promptly accepted. Struggling in the art world, Schnabel worked as a short-order cook and frequented Max's Kansas City, a restaurant-nightclub, while he worked on his art. In 1975, Schnabel had his first solo show at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston. In addition to his work as an artist, Schnabel has written and directed three films: Basquiat, a biopic on the painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, Before Night Falls, an adaptation of Reinaldo Arenas' autobiographical novel, which he also produced, and The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, an adaptation of a French memoir by Jean-Dominique Bauby.
