Few days back, a friend asked if I had met with any sculptor who is not based in Chicago? Quite a few! What an honor!!! One of the joys of hobby-turned-profession of photo-documenting public art, has been the opportunity to meet with artists based in Chicago and beyond. Here are a few sculptors I’ve met who are not based in Chicago.
DISCLAIMER: When I say “Rendezvous with National & International Sculptors”, I am talking about sculptors who are not based in Chicago. There are many Chicago based artists who nationally and internationally famous.. like Richard Howard Hunt, Terrence Karpowicz, Barbara Cooper, Nicole Beck, Christine Rojek, to name just a few, and there are many more who have artworks installed in different locations beyond Chicago! However, here I am talking about artists who are not based in Chicago but have their work exhibited here, permanently or temporarily.
International artists I have met: Peter Nižňanský [Prague, Czech Republic], Jaume Plensa [Barcelona, Spain], Steinunn Thorarinsdottir [Reykjavik, Iceland], Virginio Ferrari [Verona, Italy], Andy Scott [Glasgow, UK], Denise Milan [São Paulo, Brazil], and Theodoros Papagiannis [Athens, Greece].
Some out of Chicago artists I have met: Chakaia Booker [New York], Jun Kaneko, Carole A. Feuerman [New York].
