Born in 1968, Fig received both his BFA and MFA from the School of Visual Arts. His body of work encompasses painting, photography and sculpture, in which he examines his fascination with the role of the artist, the creative process and the self-made universe of the artist’s studio. Fig’s work has been exhibited internationally at the Bass Museum of Art (Miami Beach, FL), Parrish Art Museum (Southampton, NY), Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (Philadelphia, PA) and New Britain Museum of American Art (New Britain, CT). His first book Inside the Painter's Studio is currently in its sixth printing, and his second book Inside the Artist's Studio will be available in fall 2015. Fig is represented by Cristin Tierney Gallery in New York, and a solo exhibition of the artist’s new works is slated to open in September. Fig works and lives in Connecticut's Farmington River Valley.
