Art History

What do you get when you mix recyclables with sculpting and printmaking? “Rural Chic,” says Chicago based artist, Dolan Geiman. Geiman’s eco-friendly art emerges from a folk art tradition infused with a contemporary, urban style. His intensity stems from the knowledge and respect for the earth growing up in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley raised by his father, who worked for the US Forest Service and mother, a watercolor artist.

Art projects usually start with reclaiming pieces of the past such as salvaged wood, found objects, and other recycled materials for this eco-mixed media artist. Currently based in Chicago’s Sustainable Manufacturing Center, Geiman and his business partner and fiancée, Ali, are committed to being earth-friendly and encouraging other artists to become aware of the everyday materials they can recycle, reuse and, reprint.
