Aaron Krach is an artist, writer, and teacher in NYC. He works with books, people, text, rocks, spray paint, vodka, plants, and just about anything, to make installations and experiences, sculpture and books. He exhibits in galleries, book fairs, and public spaces in big cities (Sao Paulo, NYC) and smaller towns (Lake Ohrid, Macedonia; Lincolnshire, England). He’s made paintings with a frog, collaborated with soldiers in Afghanistan, and flea market shoppers in Georgia, the country not the state.
You can find his work in galleries, but more likely you’ll see it outside—in a newspaper, or in your email, on a T-shirts, in libraries or your post office box. “Rumors and Hope” appeared on Google Earth. A set of ten books “…Found on eBay And Printed In A Book” came from a 25,000-image archive he found online. With his friend Margaret Rizzio, the “Installments” series has now reached its 15th edition. And his latest is “Sottsass Showers,” a mash-up of his favorite Memphis-era designer and classic American Beefcake photography.
Aaron is a two-time recipient of a Lower Manhattan Cultural Grant for Public Art and a Puffin Foundation Grant . His work is in the collection of The Whitney Museum of American Art, the library at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, The Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona, and Yale University, among others. His first novel, “Half-Life,” was published by Alyson Books.
He currently teaches art and design at Parsons, The New School for Design, Purchase College, and Queens College CUNY.
