Galen Gibson-Cornell (United States, b. 1987) is a visual artist working at the intersection of urban commentary, found-material collage, and studio-based printmaking.
An itinerant traveler, he creates a studio practice by exploring cities and deconstructing the resulting materials, thoughts, and experiences into methodical and meditative artworks.
Gibson-Cornell demonstrates a professional and cultural fascination with European cities, focusing on creative projects in Berlin; Budapest, Hungary (for which he was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship); Venice, Italy; and Novi Sad, Serbia.
His artwork has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions across the United States and Europe, with recent solo exhibitions in Berlin, Budapest, and Venice. He has curated exhibitions in Berlin; Madison, WI; and Florence, Italy; and lectured on his work at universities, museums, and academic conferences internationally.
