A native New Yorker now residing in beautiful Susquehanna County, PA, is a composer, artist, furniture designer and occasional programmer, His music has received many accolades and has been heard in concert, at music festivals and on FM stations in the USA and abroad. His digital art has only recently begun to be submitted to real world galleries, but may be found in many online. The US Airforce Reasearch Laboratories recently installed twenty-one of his works in its new facilities in Rome, NY.
Fascinated by digital art and its remarkable similarity to electronic music in the way that it's created, he now has a portfolio containing well over two hundred paintings, all of which, along with his music, geometric copper tables and software, are currently on display at his Hi-Tech Arts website[http://HiTechArts.com/].
Furman received his formal training in composition at Queens College, NY--now a part of SUNY--and at Wesleyan University where he garnered some insights into contemporary experimental music and ethnomusicology. He studied architecture at Pratt Institute and the University of Cincinnati where, in addition to art classes at Queens College, NY, he studied architectural rendering, sculpture, ceramics, drawing, figure drawing, painting and drafting .
His "plumbing tables" are an offshoot of a long composing hiatus and an appreciation for the beauty and versatility of the materials he used to replace the plumbing in his New York City home. They became his artistic outlet for several years and have since found their way into many fine homes.
