George Schneeman, a native of St. Paul, Minnesota, began painting in 1958 in Italy after graduate work at the University of Minnesota and service in the US Army. Nine years later, he moved to New York City with his wife Katie (Kathryn Pratt). Engaging in the Poetry Project at St. Mark's Church, Schneeman began collaborating with poets Ted Berrigan, Larry Fagin, Alice Notley, Anne Waldman, and others.
His solo work has been exhibited at the Fischbach Gallery and Holly Solomon Gallery, both in New York and at the Denver Art Museum, CUE Art Foundation, and other public and private institutions. In 2004, Tibor de Nagy Gallery in New York City exhibited his collaborative work "Painter Among Poets." Schneeman lives in New York and spends part of each year in Tuscany.
