Bruce Beasley is an American abstract expressionist sculptor born in Los Angeles, CA  in 1939. He attended Dartmouth College from 1957–59, and the University of California, Berkeley from 1959-62 where he earned his BA. At 21, Beasley became the youngest artist in the Museum of Modern Art’s collection after his work was included in the seminal group exhibition “The Art of Assemblage” in 1961. A prolific creator, Beasley has mastered a variety of materials. He uses 3D-modeling software to create his abstract sculptures, and his innovations contributed to the development of the first studio-scale 3D printer. Beasley is celebrated for the curvilinear, cast-acrylic sculptures he produced in the 1970s and 1980s. The artist has also worked with iron scraps, aluminum, stainless steel, and bronze. Many of his large-scale sculptures comprise simple cubic shapes that seem to precariously balance teetering towers and arching forms. Throughout his career, Beasley has been featured in more than 200 exhibitions; numerous solo exhibitions, participated in group shows, and is represented in museum collections throughout the United States and Europe including: the Museum of Modern Art, New York City, NY; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York City, NY; Musee d’Arte Moderne, Paris, France; National Museum of American Art, Washington DC; Staditische Kunsthalle Mannheim, Mannheim, Germany; Museum of Modern Art, San Francisco, CA; to name a few. In 2005, the first retrospective exhibition of Beasley’s work was held at the Oakland Museum of California. Beasley is currently living and working in Oakland, California.
