Bio

Galen Gibson-Cornell is a visual artist working with a practice that combines urban exploration, found-material collage, and principles of détournement. An itinerant traveler, he explores cities in order to deconstruct the resulting materials, thoughts, and experiences into methodical and meditative artworks.

Holding a Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin, Gibson-Cornell works intermittently between Madison, WI and Berlin, Germany. Born and raised in small-town Missouri, he 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.
