Craniv in Maine – New York Artist has One Man Show at Lincoln Street Center
About the Artist - Craniv Ambolia Boyd was born in 1983 in New York City and continues to live there. He was raised a Buddhist, and from age 11 traveled often to Japan near Mt. Fuji on religious pilgrimages. His art education began at the age of eight at the renowned Art Students League where he is now a lifetime member. The artist attended both the Bronx High School of Science and Humanities Preparatory Academy for high school education. During his high school years, Craniv got a view into the art world by working for a New York Art gallery, Alexander and Bonin, and working in the Bob Blackburn Printmaking Shop as an apprentice.
He attended Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art where he received a Bachelors degree in fine arts. He spent his junior year at the Universität der Künste in Berlin, Germany, as an Erasmus exchange student. The exchange year was an opportunity to meet many German artists and to expand a fascination with Germany and its language, which Craniv had since childhood.
During his time at Cooper Union, Craniv was in the employ of the painter Jacqueline Humphries as a studio assistant responsible for the fabrication of silver oil paint. In addition, he was an instructor for two years at the Saturday Outreach Program, at Cooper Union where he taught sculpture and graphic design.
Craniv’s first one-person exhibition was held at the Ex Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, in October 2006.
DJ Mark Elwin will provide music. The Public is invited to the opening on November 9th from 5-7pm.
