Derek Weisberg received his BFA from the California College of Arts and Crafts. Since then, he has co-owned a gallery, curated exhibitions, and exhibited his sculptures nationally and internationally. About the emotional intensity of his artwork, Weisberg states, “I create works of art that are emotional and psychological self-portraits. Through my work I aim to make sense of my life, my experiences, and the times in which I live.…My goal is to create images that are accessible and allow the viewer to have an experience that can not be easily articulated, but felt.” Weisberg currently lives and works in New York, and is a resident studio technician at Greenwich House Pottery.
