Goldberg was born to parents of Japanese and Jewish ancestry in the Bronx in 1971 and moved to the East End at the age of 2. He attended Southampton High School and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art from Binghamton University in 1994. After completing his undergraduate studies, he opened his first studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and later relocated to Avenue A in Manhattan’s East Village, where he began his exploration of digital media and its relation to abstraction. In 2007, Goldberg earned a Master of Fine Arts degree under full scholarship from Bowling Green State University in Ohio.
The artist’s work has been exhibited at the Manhattan Armory, the Parrish Art Museum, the Islip Art Museum and the Roberson Museum in Binghamton, as well as galleries and art fairs in the Hamptons, Manhattan, Boston, Miami, Los Angeles and San Francisco. In 2005, one of his canvasses was accepted into the permanent collection of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in Springs, the former home and studio of painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. He is currently represented by Yes Gallery in Brooklyn, yesgalleryyes.com.
Art Sites Gallery is located at 651 West Main Street in Riverhead.
