Art Morrill

Born in Moncton, Canada, Art Morrill has always been making art and objects for as long as he can remember. A husband and father of three boys and one girl, his work has always contained a certain amount of playfulness. An early interest in 90’s skateboard graphics nurtured a sensibility for bright, saturated color. In 2013 his youngest son’s diagnosis of two heart defects and subsequent surgery and recovery directed Art’s interest toward developing work that explores the structure and manipulability of the body interpreted through a language of abstraction. Art graduated with a BFA from Brigham Young University in 2013 and an MFA from the Mount Royal School of Interdisciplinary Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2015.
