Exhibiting Artist

Alex Wells Shapiro is a text based artist from New York, currently pursuing an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work includes poetry, sculpture and installation and is often interested in culturing text in environments that are overlooked or obstructed. Most recently this work has included installations on sidewalks composed of language made from soil and creating sculptural objects from broken shards of glass to house and distort texts.
