His Style and Art Career: Enormous canvases filled with vibrant colors and bold strokes (some of his paintings were done only with his fingers though!) sum up Schnabel's paintings. His first exhibition was at the Mary Boone Gallery in 1980. It launched him into the New York art scene. He gathered a following for his emotion-filled unusual works. By the time he exhibited his work in a show jointly organized by Boone and Leo Castelli in 1981, he had become firmly established for his neo-expressionist paintings created on unique surfaces. Schnabel's signature works, both abstract and figurative, have a base surface either black velvet or broken pottery (most common were ceramic plates). His paintings were filled with raw emotion, the paintings contain an underlying edge of brutality while still having a youthful energy. The monstrous canvases have elements of collage, but his arrival as an artist signified the return of painting to an art scene that previously revolved around conceptual and minimalist art.
