Artist Daniel Gibson joins Rail ArtSeen Editor Amanda Gluibizzi for a conversation. We conclude with a poetry reading.
In this talk
Born in Yuma, AZ in 1977, artist Daniel Gibson grew up in El Centro, CA, and other surrounding towns that border Mexicali, Baja California. His early inspiration came from the exposure to the desert and communities, raised at a sheet rock factory in Plaster City, CA, where his father worked. Gibson’s output is bred by his indispensable draw towards creation, an expressive therapeutic flow of visions and beliefs, real life situations and dreams, comprising a combination of elements incomparably extricated and productively gifted. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
