Daniel Arsham is an American artist from Cleveland, Ohio, currently living and working in New York creating these delicate and masterful sculptures out of contemporary and experimental mediums.
Daniel Arsham has had several solo and group exhibitions showcasing his amazing sculptures across the world, as well as numerous features in press articles and catalogues highlighting his unique style of creating art. Arsham’s style of art overlaps with working with modern and contemporary sculptural forms. His most recent series is a showcase of sculptures of figures constructed from broken shards of glass. His three figurative glass sculptures are his most notable sculpture series among his recent work, the birth of this project starting in 1992 when Hurricane Andrew resulted in his discovery of shards of glass in his home.
These figurative glass shard sculptures are made from compacted broken glass, devoid of any use of color or unnecessary visual complexity, but instead focusing entirely on the physical manipulation of the material used to create the form. Daniel Arsham’s work is directly relevant to the space in which it is meant to be displayed. This often involves altering the gallery space and wall surfaces to suit the visual requirements of the sculptures.
Daniel Arsham being the maestro of three dimensional art that he is, also recently worked on another interesting series called ‘Pixel Clouds’: literally cloud-like forms made out of plastic and suspended in mid air. At a glance, it almost seems the clouds have been constructed from a bunch of ping pong balls that have been dyed in different tones, altogether performing a miraculous play of light and space. Have a look both of these series below and be blown away.
