About Dan Fig

Dan Fig received his MFA from Hunter College. Growing up around several languages, and stints living in different European countries have provided a unique context for Fig's work, where he plays on pan-liguistic-visual concepts, distilling ideas into images that are a confluence of cross cultural references and experiences combined in a single picture plane. His works included in Platform 2020 are abstracted depictions of a soccer pitch, pulled from his personal experience as an active participant and a passive observer of the game - feelings that he imbeds within his work. Fig portrays grass with a cartoon-like sensibility, informed by his background in graphic design, boldly outlining and flattening each blade of grass in a way that is at once abstract but also universally recognizable.
