Artist Profile: Damian Velasquez, Metal
Damian has been a craftsperson for 20 years and lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. This will be his first time exhibiting at Art In The Pearl. Teaching himself to weld led to http://www.phpaide.com/demos/PowerPetition/ making furniture, first for himself and then for friends. Before he knew it, he was exhibiting at art mobile casino fairs and has stayed busy ever since. Damien’s work is unique in that he uses ordinary materials and takes them out of context, resulting in highly refined forms that are simple and clean yet remain functional.
