Linus Borgo Receives Betty Lee Stern Prize for Artists
Linus Borgo is the inaugural recipient of Columbia University’s Betty Lee Stern Prize for Artists. The grant is awarded to only one graduating MFA student annually. A selection committee member noted that Borgo’s painting is “monumental and complex” and that he is “a highly skilled painter with powerful imagery that works on many levels, taking the self-portrait into the allegorical.”
Yossi Milo Gallery is pleased to announce the representation of New York-based painter Linus Borgo. Highly figurative in nature, his paintings oscillate between sublime depictions of the aftermath of trauma and quotidian moments of daily life in the city. His compositions are marked by their elegant arrangement of bodies, vibrant color palette, and incorporation of spiritual themes. The artist’s first solo show in New York City will open at the gallery in 2023.
