Donald M. Sheridan (b. 1950). Born in America in 1950, Donald M. Sheridan was brought up a self-titled ‘Navy brat’ and went on to study psychiatry in college where he quickly discovered that he preferred a more artistic lifestyle. At eighteen years old, Sheridan became engaged in the practice of fine art silkscreen print-making and in 1977 he began working with the renowned printmaker Rupert Jasen Smith. The six years that followed were to be the most formative of Sheridan’s early artistic career for Rupert Jasen Smith was the preferred Master Printmaker of the American Pop artist, Andy Warhol.

Between 1977 and 1982 Sheridan perfected his screenprinting technique, collaborating with Warhol to make many of the Pop artist’s most famous graphic artworks. Sheridan reflects on how reverentially Andy Warhol acknowledged the talent of Smith’s studio team and recalls the moment when walking into his exhibition ‘Portraits of the Seventies’ at the Whitney Museum with Sheridan and Smith in November 1979, Warhol turned to them and exclaimed: ‘What a nice show you boys have here!... Make them pretty...’. Donald M. Sheridan fondly refers to this period of his career as the ‘University of Andy’.

In 1984, after two years at the studio of fellow printmaker Larry B. Wright where Sheridan printed editions by Robert Rauschenberg and Larry Poons among many others, ‘Donald M. Sheridan Fine Arts’ was established at a studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. To this day Donald and his studio continue to publish portfolios and editions by emerging and established contemporary artists, collaborating with those artists who seek to enlarge their repertoire by producing printed editions and unique monoprints.
