Elliott Arkin first gained recognition in the art world for the 3D cartoons he created for Artnet.com, the preeminent website in the 1990's . His art career began however, after graduating from Amherst College in 1983 and starting in New York designing windows for Tiffany’s & Co. and fabricating special-effects models for films and commercials. These experiences continue to inform his work, which operates in the spaces between high art and popular culture. His sculptures have been seen in galleries and museums around the world, and they are currently in several permanent collections, including the Louvre Museum’s Musee des Arts Decoratifs and the New York Public Library. Arkin’s solo exhibitions have garnered reviews in publications such as the Village Voice, Art in America, NY Times, and he has created work for numerous cause related organizations, including the New York City Ballet’s anti-AIDS campaign; Muhammad Ali’s World Healing Project; The Nelson Mandela Foundation Project for Human Rights and Amnesty International.
In 2013, The Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MAMAC) in Nice, France mounted the first major solo exhibition of Arkin's work titled: A Peaceable Kingdom.
Currently, he is continuing his work while developing “Mister Artsee,” a mobile arts laboratory whose mission is to travel city street while bringing art and art education especially to under served communities. for information on this non-profit organization can be found at www.MisterArtSee.org
