Doron Langberg (b. 1985, Israel) is a New York-based figurative painter known for intimate portraits of friends, lovers, family. Langberg’s works are queer in a manner that extends beyond sexuality, concerned with questions of interiority, relationships and the body. Physicality appears both in the work and its making, as various methods of mark-making communicate different forms of emotional information. His textures are dynamic and sensual, as we follow his figures from beach to bar to bed. Langberg’s contribution to Art for Black Lives, Nisan, is a portrait of his brother, painted during a recent trip home after many months’ absence. Langberg received an MFA from Yale University School of Art and is the recipient of the American Academy of Arts and Letters John Koch award for painting and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant. Langberg’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Yossi Milo Gallery, New York, the Schwules Museum, Berlin, Carl Freedman Gallery, Kent and (upcoming) at Victoria Miro. His work has been included in group exhibitions at the LSU Museum, American Academy of Arts and Letters, Leslie-Lohman Museum, New York; The PAFA Museum and (upcoming) at the ICA Boston. He is an alum of A4BL partner Queer|Art’s mentorship program.
