Dustin Yellin b. 1975
Dustin Yellin was born in California in 1975 and raised in Colorado before establishing his studio in Brooklyn. He started his career, as so many artists do, in painting, but was left unfulfilled by the pursuit. In search of a new creative direction, he began experimenting with resin-coated collages in the early 2000s and over the course of the next two decades would create successively larger and more complex sculptures, eventually switching from resin to glass in the 2010s. In addition to being a successful artist, he is also the founder and director of Pioneer Works, a non-profit multidisciplinary arts center in Brooklyn. A 24,000 square foot space, it houses a museum, studio, concert venue, and rentable space with the goal of fostering a community through both arts and sciences. In the artist’s own words “It’s a university, but it’s a museum and a publishing house and a stage. It’s everything in one”. Yellin’s work has been exhibited worldwide and his most recent pieces focus on the relationship between humanity, fossil fuel dependence, and their effects on our planet.
