Daniel Klaas Beckwith was born in the United States in 1988. Beckwith’s sculptures exist at the collision of cultural paradigms, from videogame arcades to museological displays. Through humorous juxtapositions of cultural artifacts, Beckwith blurs the boundary between the real and the artificial, the commonplace and the metaphysical.
Beckwith holds an MFA in Sculpture from Yale University and a BFA in Sculpture from Virginia Commonwealth University. In 2015, he received the Lin Art and Architecture Scholarship and the Fannie B Pardee Prize. His work has been shown in numerous group exhibitions, including Wet Eyes at MEYOHAS, A Small Group Show of American and British Artists at Space Space, Tokyo, and Vacancy at Motel.
