Born in 1980 in the USA. Lives and works in New York.

From drawings to sculptures, passing through installations and paintings, Daniel Arsham’s work often draws on architecture. His ethereal landscapes frequently depict ruins – oddly intact – in the middle of lush nature. An ambivalence remains in the quiet atmosphere of these works, showing elements of architecture falling from the sky or flying in the air. This might be the result of an attempt of the artist to combine static and dynamic, and to exorcize his own bad memories of his childhood house, which was destroyed by a hurricane.
