1. He has a famous father.

2. He is a New York City-based art dealer.
Schnabel operates a private exhibition space in Manhattan’s West Village out of his father’s palatial Pepto Bismal-pink West Village building, dubbed Palazzo Chupi. Schnabel regularly collaborates with galleries and art venues worldwide.
3. He cavorts with world-class supermodels.
Schnabel is rumored to have romance former supermodel Elle Macpherson, when the Aussie beauty was 44 and he was just 21.
4. He’s an entrepreneur well beyond his years.
After organizing his first art show at age 16, Schnabel broke ground on his first temporary gallery space in the TriBeCa neighborhood of Manhattan in 2004 at just 17-years-old.
5. He appreciates the beauty of older…art.
Instead of dedicating his career on up-and-coming visionaries, Schnabel has focused much time on cultivating artists from his father’s generation, such as painter Ron Gorchov or Andy Warhol‘s contemporary, Rene Ricard. “I’m not necessarily looking for young artists’ work,” he said in the NY Sun. “People ask me, ‘Who’s the next new artist?’ Well, if it’s the first time I’ve seen someone’s work, then it’s new to me.”
