Garret Kane is a mixed media artist based in Brooklyn NY developing the concept of Neo-Naturalism - the distortion and recreation of ‘base nature’ through human technology.
Growing up if he wasn’t drawing or sculpting, he was playing in nature. In his 20’s he began a career in advertising working his way up to a Creative Director role.
Despite the 9-5 he spent every spare second learning both traditional and 3D sculpting techniques, until finally it boiled over and he left advertising to become a full-time artist.
Since then he’s had several solo exhibitions, installations in New York’s Flatiron building, a residency in Brazil and an upcoming residency in Mexico City.
As a mixed media sculptor, Garret strives to capture the fragility and beauty of human nature. But it is his ethos that in today’s world, drawing attention to a problem is not enough. The art itself should aim to fix it. That’s why 10% of all profits from the sale of work is donated to the Environmental Defense Fund. www.edf.org
