Don Wilson

A Northern New Mexico-based sculptor, furniture maker and sign artist, he found himself growing less intrigued with business and more interested in art projects as his artistic career moved forward. With artistic influences such as Marcel Duchamp, Willem de Kooning and his friend and mentor, sculptor Ted Egri, when he moved to New Mexico a decade ago with its unique environment, Wilson was inspired to shift the materials to fabricate his sculptures and fountains towards the materials of the landscape; used wood, steel, aluminum, and various stones, all which accumulated into pieces that are robust, organic and occasionally humorous.
