Born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Ian Pedigo left the cold Northwest at a young age to travel and later study sculpture and visual art in Texas, Italy, and Austria. In Salzburg, Austria, (2001) he participated in a program (Internationale Sommerakademie fur Bildende Kunst) that had a lasting affect on his work where Pedigo studied with installation artists such as the Russian Ilya Kabakov. Pedigo received his MFA (2002) from the University of Texas at Austin and relocated to New York that year where he continues to live and work. He has been featured in solo exhibitions in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Italy, and France and has participated in numerous group exhibitions both nationally and abroad. Pedigo’s work has received reviews in many contemporary art publications including Artforum, Art In America, Art News, Freize, and Art Review; as well as in periodic publications such as The New York Times, Time Out New York, and the New Yorker. A full color catalog dedicated to his work created over the past four years will be released later this year.
