1972 · United States
Exploring a multitude of themes in his work, American artist Luis Gispert uses his art to express his misgivings and deeper contemplations on mainstream popular culture.
Enticing the viewer with dramatic creations that tease the eye with their theatric effects, Gispert allows the work to evolve alongside the viewer’s experience of it. Experimenting with various surfaces and the merger of unexpected objects into alluring forms, Gispert asks his audience to investigate these surfaces while also diving deeper into the critical themes that lay beneath.
Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, in 1972, Gispert trained at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and then went on to complete his MFA Yale University in 2001. Since then, Gispert has enjoyed an incredibly busy exhibition schedule. Recent solo shows of his work have been held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami, Florida; the University Art Gallery at the University of California, San Diego, California; and the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire. Examples of his work are also part of prominent permanent museum collections, including those of the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
