Dana Parlier is a New York visual artist who sculpts in a variety of media, including welded steel, bronze, clay, and plaster. In his early years, Mr. Parlier studied the figure intensively. His work encompasses a wide mix of styles including abstract compositions and what he describes as “anatomical deviations” to human figures combined with geometric forms. Mr. Parlier’s public art can be seen across the U.S., from the campus of Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, to the streets of Madison City, IA in the “River City Sculptures on Parade,” to “Sculpture Walk” in Sioux Falls, SD and the galleries of New York City. Mr. Parlier was recently featured as one of the cutting-edge names in “Art Week NYC” at Tribeca’s Saphira & Ventura Gallery. Four afternoons a week, Mr. Parlier mentors emerging artists at The Art Students League of NY where he teaches Metal Sculpture. Mr. Parlier holds an MFA.
