Carolyn Oberst is a pioneering interdisciplinary artist working across painting, drawing and mixed media. Originally from Philadelphia, Oberst lived in London and Southern Spain before permanently moving to New York City. With a background in photography and fashion, Oberst eventually trained her keen eye for composition on painting. She trained at the New York Studio School before studying at the Art Students League under Marshall Glasier. She began drawing and painting full-time during this period, beginning to exhibit her work in 1980.
Oberst has exhibited her work in solo and group shows across New York City and the United States, and, internationally, in Seoul, S. Korea. Her work is held in numerous private collections. The artist’s work will be on view at Westbeth gallery in Spring, 2019.
