Dan Arps

Dan Arps is an Auckland based sculptor, painter and installation artist. His works explore an interest in architecture, public space, nomadic structures, and modernist traditions of abstraction, and respond to themes of alienation, the everyday, the urban environment and contemporary subjectivity.
