Miami based architectural sculptor and furniture designer comes to Becker Minty.
From an early age, Miami-based artist Dan Schneiger was captivated by the work of masters like Brancusi, Noguchi and Neutra. Surrounded by his mothers art and design books as well as clay, paint, fabric, plaster, charcoal, canvas and metals, he rarely played with traditional toys, and those tactile materials became his play things, as he learned to express himself through art.
That passion for art and design led Dan to enrol in a Bachelor of Environmental Design and a Master of Architecture at the University of Minnesota, and after graduating in 1997, he worked on a range of architectural projects including public schools, residential and retail developments.
As an artist and architect, Dan has always been conscious of the symbiotic relationship between the two disciplines. Having entered the architecture profession at a time when many things were transitioning to digital, he felt that the design process had been upended by technology. He observed the increasing separation between how we design architecture and make art. As a response to this growing divide, Dan was compelled to make things with his hands that were architectural while consciously denying the impact of computers and conformance to the contemporary design process. His work is an exploration of the symbiosis between art and architecture and the tension between technology and handcraft.

Dan has graced us with his presence coming all the way from Miami. We humbly invite you to meet the artist himself on the opening night of his exhibition here at the Becker Minty store. It will be held on the 31st of Aug from 6pm to 8pm.
