Salman Toor was born in 1983 in Lahore, Pakistan and lives and works in New York City. Toor received a BFA from Ohio Wesleyan University and an MFA from the Pratt Institute. Strongly influenced by Old Master and Surrealist works, the artist’s intimate figurative paintings often draw from his own life as a queer man in New York City, tenderly depicting both the freedoms and vulnerabilities of his urbane, cosmopolitan community.
