Artist Spotlight!: Brian Dettmer


Hello there fellow art lovers, today I have another unbelievable artist that I want to show everyone, and he is an artist that currently resides in Atlanta, GA and is known for his detailed and innovative sculptures with books and other forms of antiquated media. Dettmer’s art is amazing, the pieces that calls to me the most are his book artworks, I find them the most thought provoking ones, he takes book and start carving out of them into to create his unique diorama like sculptures, his works are literally massages of his ideas, either works he display or the book’s imagery, which is no surprise that his nickname is “the book surgeon.” His work has been featured on the CBS Evening News, The New York Times (US), The Los Angeles Times (US), The Guardian (UK), The Telegraph (UK) Chicago Tribune (US), The Age (AU), Art News, Modern Painters, Wired, The Village Voice, Harper’s, Esquire and National Public Radio among others. With such amazing and unique artwork it is no surprise that he has become one of the leading International contemporary artists working with the book today, and artist that will become one of the worlds greatest, I can be sure of it.
