Tom Friedman was born in St. Louis, Missouri in 1965 and received his BFA. at Washington University in St. Louis and his MFA at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Tom Friedman's art has been exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally. The quirky, and flawlessly executed work tends to defy categorization. While his art is often linked to 1960s Conceptualism and Minimal art, Friedman invents his own visual language through his almost obsessive attentiveness to detail and his striking ability to transform the familiar into the unexpected. He uses common household materials such as aluminum foil, spaghetti, fishing line, hair, Styrofoam, and Play-Doh to create works that rearrange the viewer's perceptions of the everyday environment. Often humorous and always inventive, Friedman's work raises questions about the making and seeing of art.
