Artist of the Day…Jacob Dahlgren

Today’s artist, Jacob Dahlgren, is a great conceptual artist who’s works run the gamut from sculptures to collages to installation pieces. I wanted to feature his work because I was drawn to the piece above which is called Colour Reading & Architecture. He used a variety of materials including carpets, wood, tile, and even chocolate! It reminds me of some sort of abstract cityscape. 

Dahlgren has exhibited all over the world and has also been commissioned for various architectural designs and personal sculptures.

I love art like this…so in your face and interactive!
