One half of the seminal electronic duo Suicide, Alan Vega was born in Brooklyn, New York. He began his career as a visual artist, gaining notoriety in the early 70s for his radical light sculptures and through the mid-80s had numerous one-man art exhibitions at OK Harris at the Barbara Gladstone galleries in Manhattan.

 

In the early 70s, Vega co-founded a lower Manhattan art & music forum, ‘the Project of Living Artists’ in a large warehouse space in SoHo. It was there he met Martin Rev and together they formed Suicide, whose minimalist music, a fusion of Rev's ominous, repetitive keyboards and Vega's rockabilly snarl, helped paved the way for the electronic artists of the future.
