About the Artist

Hailing from Miami, New York based contemporary artist Daniel Arsham attended The Cooper Union in New York City where he received the Gelman Trust Fellowship Award in 2003. He became represented by Galerie Perrotin in Paris in 2005, toured worldwide with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company as a stage designer, and founded collaborative design studio Snarkitecture with Alex Mustonen in 2007. In 2014, Arsham established a film company called Films of the Future. In 2021, Arsham was appointed the role of creative director of the Cleveland Cavaliers, becoming the first-ever fine artist to hold a position of this nature. In recent years, Arsham's practice has begun to bridge the gap between fine art and commerce through Arsham Editions and Archive Editions, two subsets of Arsham Studio dedicated to the conception of limited edition artworks aimed at reaching a wider global audience. Today, he engages in ongoing collaborative practices with world-renowned artists, musicians, designers, and brands like Tiffany & Co., Disney, Heinz, and more.

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
