Claes Gabriel, next on artblog radio


Claes Gabriel (Claes is pronounced “Clays”) is an artist whose work we encountered at Sande Webster Gallery in last year’s “5 under 40” exhibit.  We love his bright-colored totemic shapes made of stretched canvas over wood armatures.  The artist was born in Port au Prince, Haiti in 1977 and came to the US in 1989.  He studied at Maryland Institute College of Art (BFA 1999) and while right now he’s in Philadelphia, his long-range plans involve living in Europe.  Below is a short sample from our talk.  The full podcast interview will run next Monday.
