Hans Gullickson studied writing, process and performance, at School of the Art Institute of Chicago under members of Goat Island Performance Group. He has worked with a wide range of materials and objects such as hand made books, zines, video art, sound art, installations, large scale paintings on paper, handmade wallpaper and interactive public projects. His interest in working outside of the assumptions of a specifically western mode of thought with respect to thinking about and creating artwork has led him to explore other cultures, such as Thailand and Japan, and the ways they deal with art, sacred objects, culture, expression and communication. Hans Gullickson lives in Brooklyn.
