Biography Gregory Barsamian
Working from a garage-like studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Gregory Barsamian creates kinetic sculpture from pieces of fabric, urethane foam, motors, strobe lights, newspapers, and sculpted body parts. He first sketches his ideas on a story board, makes a plaster mold, and then casts them in foam rubber.
He was raised in Skokie, Illinois, where he worked with his father on fix-up projects such as repairing old cars. He studied philosophy at the University of Wisconsin and supported himself by working in a bicycle shop and fixing cars. He also took up glass blowing, and became fascinated with strobe lights--all which he incorporates into his sculpture.
In 1983, he moved to New York and bought two buildings which he remodeled.
