Video: The Bombastic Work Of Contemporary Artist Howard Sherman

Houston artist creates energetic and aggressive works on canvas and paper.

We visited the studio of Houston-based artist Howard Sherman to learn about the inspiration and process behind his large-scale, abstract works. Sherman, whose work was featured on the cover of the book Texas Abstract, thinks his work has the qualities of “an intellectual primal animal,” exuding chaos, humor, energy and physicality.

This video will be featured on the Houston PBS program Arts InSight, airing Friday, September 9, 8:30pm, on TV 8.
