Zane York was born in Fremont, Nebraska and was raised all over the Midwest; including nine formative years in Dubuque, IA. From an artistic family, he began drawing at an early age; his focus and passion quickly became evident. He spent hours drawing and learning anatomy in pursuit of illustrating comic books – a goal wisely abandoned. Zane Received his B.F.A. in Drawing, Painting, and Sculpture from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and his M.F.A. in Painting from the New York Academy of Art, graduating with honors from both institutions. He moved out to Brooklyn in 2001 and maintains his studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Zane is represented by Causey Contemporary in New York. He has shown in New York, California, Florida, St. Barthelemy, France, and throughout the Midwest. He has lectured on his work in correlation with his exhibitions “Wunderkammer” at Ripon College and “Curious Remnants” at Causey Contemporary.
