Dennis Oppenheim

Dennis Oppenheim received his B.F.A from the School of Arts and Crafts in Oakland California. He then went on to get his M.F.A. from Stanford University in 1966. Oppenheim has been honored with many awards including a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.

His sculptures contain an almost sarcastic humor. His saturated colors that he uses on common objects make  his work comical, but still intriguing. He incorporates a lot of architectural ideas in his work'as well. I really enjoy the originality and fearlessness of his work.
