About Marcel Dzama

Marcel Dzama (b. 1974, Canada) distills diverse narrative traditions including mythology, classic literature, Dadaism, Surrealist film, agitprop, and dance to produce a distinct visual language. Through drawing, sculpture, painting, collage, and film, Dzama depicts surreal, anachronistic worlds inhabited by fantastic characters, both human and animal. He received his BFA from the University of Manitoba and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
