Mr. Singer has been endorsed by Marquis Who's Who as a leader in the fine arts industry

    ROCHESTER, NY, June 02, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Marquis Who's Who, the world's premier publisher of biographical profiles, is proud to name Alan Daniel Singer a Lifetime Achiever. An accomplished listee, Mr. Singer celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Mr. Singer is a celebrated painter, printmaker, lecturer, graphic designer, and educator in upstate New York who began exhibiting while still a collegiate student at Cooper Union. His work has been featured at many prestigious galleries, museums, and in art books. Mr. Singer is the son of renowned ornithological painter Arthur Singer, and did much of his early work as a father and son team. They are perhaps best known for the 1982 U.S. Postal Service (USPS) stamp collection, "Birds and Flowers of Our 50 States."

Mr. Singer grew up in a family of artists in Long Island, New York, with a studio in his attic and enormous paintings hanging in his home. He fondly recalls that his father had grown up in the city with only pigeons to look at, but drew inspiration for his art from institutions like the Bronx Zoo. Mr. Singer would accompany his father's working trips, and learned to emulate his father's style so well that they ultimately collaborated on the joint project "State Birds." Mr. Singer illustrated the floral backgrounds for signature avian species in all 50 states. In 1982 those paintings became the basis of a USPS stamp collection which drew widespread acclaim. Mr. Singer remarked in a television interview that there was a period of time when he could simply point and say, "You know my work, it's on that envelope over there." He also revised his father's authoritative collection, "Birds of North America." Additionally, he co-authored with his brother, Paul Singer, a new book about the life and art of Arthur Singer titled "The Wildlife Art of an American Master," published by RIT in 2017.

Though Mr. Singer initially learned to paint with his father, he was also working on a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Cooper Union, which he earned in 1972. He received multiple scholarships for a Master of Fine Arts at Cornell University and went on to study at Yale University as well as Pratt Institute until 1977. From 1978 to 1980 Mr. Singer worked as an instructor at the Asa Wright Nature Center in Trinidad, which also serves as a bird sanctuary. In 1985 he returned to New York as an adult education instructor for the New York Botanical Garden, and in 1987 he became a professor of art at the Rochester Institute of Technology, where he continues teaching today.

Throughout his career Mr. Singer has contributed to exhibitions and one-man shows at many prestigious institutions, including the Everson Museum in Syracuse, the Smithsonian Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the Norman Rockwell Museum, the National Postal Service Museum, and the Arts and Cultural Council in Rochester. As a designer and illustrator, he has contributed graphics for the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Long Island University, National Geographic Book Division, and Houghton Mifflin Company. Mr. Singer has also served as a visiting professor at Syracuse University in 2006, as well as an illustrator for the medication Levaquin. He has written many essays on the visual arts for museums, newspapers, journals, and his blog called "The Visual Artworker."

Mr. Singer has been selected for inclusion in numerous volumes of Who's Who in American Art, Who's Who in America, Who's Who in the East, and Who's Who in the World. He has been honored with the 1985 Certificate of Merit from the Society of Illustrators, the 1983 Best of Year Award from the Postal Commemorative Society, the 1976 Purchase Award from the Nassau Community College, and the 1975 President's Award from the National Arts Club in New York City. He is the Past President of the Rochester Print Club, and has received grants from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Though Mr. Singer's representational painting still reflects much of the natural beauty his father was known for, his latter work features abstract designs and bold colors with a focus on printmaking techniques. Recent entries in Mr. Singer's blog show an appreciation for modern 3-D printed art, the work of Georgia O'Keefe, as well as the spring exhibitions at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Mr. Singer enjoys gardening, playing the guitar, and hiking. To visit his blog, paintings, prints, and a list of past exhibitions, please visit
