Ted Mineo

Born 1981 in New Orleans, LA

Lives and works in New York, NY

Born in 1981 in New Orleans, New York based artist Ted Mineo earned his BFA from Maryland Institute College of Art in 2002, and his MFA from Yale University in 2004. He has since exhibited across the United States and around the globe, with shows in Venice, Lisbon, Tehran, and Paris. Working across varied media, Mineo draws inspiration from the ever-increasing multitudes of derivative and disposable detritus that inundate our daily lives. In his work fragments of accessories, gadgets, and household items are melded together with organic matter, some of identifiable origin and much more completely unrecognizable. Through this incredibly thorough and realistically rendered collaging, Mineo produces uncanny and unsettling reimaginings of mundane objects, transforming the most familiar forms into something entirely alien.
