Milton Katselas had an illustrious career as a director, teacher, painter, and writer. The son of Greek immigrants, Mr. Katselas was born and raised in Pittsburgh, graduated from Carnegie Tech and served his apprenticeship in New York with directors Elia Kazan, Lee Strasberg, and Joshua Logan. His successful painting career began when he won the Emily Lowe Painting competition in New York City.
A major portion of his work focuses on the energy, movement and disorder of our times. Through the use of vibrant colors and bold forms, his paintings and sculpture allow us to appreciate and make sense of this seeming chaos. Katselas loved to rehabilitate, and many of his works began with found objects-wood, mirrors, doors and other discarded pieces of our age.
As an artist, he had seven major one-man exhibitions in Los Angeles, and in 1999 he was invited to participate in a New York exhibition -le petite formats at the Yoshii Gallery-that focused on the smaller works of some of the twentieth century’s greatest artists including Picasso, Miro, Warhol, Matisse, and others. In 2000 Katselas had an exhibition of his works on paper in both Tokyo and Los Angeles. And 2001, he had his first one man exhibition in Paris, France.
