Kevin Beasley, born in Lynchburg, Virginia, is an American artist working in sculpture, performance art, and sound installation. He attended the College of Creative Studies, Detroit, where he studied automotive design before graduating with a BFA in painting and sculpture and an MFA in sculpture from Yale University, New Haven. Beasley combines disparate found materials including personal ephemera, studio debris, and samples from various musical genres to produce works that embody their process of creation while also defamiliarizing the everyday objects and cultural references of which they are composed. He lives and works in New York City.
