Join us in the Toledo Museum of Art GlasSalon as artist Leo Tecosky discusses his work and participation in TMA’s Guest Artist Pavilion Project (GAPP) Residency. Tecosky creates sculpture and installations using traditional glassblowing and neon-bending techniques, as well as silk screening and using found and constructed elements. Recently, he has taken printmaking to a more sculptural level by allowing for a collage of 3-D glass imagery. His work is influenced by hip hop, graffiti art, and the culture of Miami, FL where he grew up. Now based in Brooklyn, NY, he maintains his studio practice and teaches at schools and studios in Brooklyn, across the United States, and internationally. Tecosky’s GAPP residency will take place Nov. 7-16, 2018.
