Mac Premo is driven to make things out of almost anything he finds. The result? Amazing recycled art.
Mac Premo, b. 1973.
American artist and stuffmaker. Graduate of Rhode Island School of Design ’95.
Exhibited art in NYC, LA, Miami, DC and Belfast, Northern Ireland. His fine art, sculpture, and collage is represented by Pavel Zoubok Gallery in NYC.
Mac has won 7 New York Emmy® Awards, including awards for best commercial, best photography, best set design and best PSA.
He currently makes art, illustration, commercials and dinner, at least most nights. He swears from time to time emphasizing a point.
Mac is active in the New York community: he serves on the board of the Friends of Douglass Greene Park, a community organization working for the revitalization of Thomas Greene Park in Brooklyn and is a 2008 fellow from the NY Foundation for the Arts.
He likes nature, society, science, emotional data (whatever that is), archaic objects, and oh, he definitely loves getting his wood on. He also likes to reflect on life and wonders about death, and worries about the fine balance between art and making money.
