Brooklyn based artist and designer Misha Kahn creates sculptural pieces that challenge the conventions of everyday objects and celebrate the vast world of techniques, materials and textures. While reimagining structure, proportion and production, Kahn works with variety of processes in a myriad of mediums including metalwork, glass, wood, textiles, ceramic, bronze casting, fiberglass, and cement.
Born in Duluth, Minnesota in 1989, Kahn graduated from Rhode Island School of Design in 2011 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Furniture Design. Soon after, he gained recognition when he was featured in the Museum of Arts and Design's Biennial in 2014.
His work has been exhibited internationally and is held in the permanent collections of several museums including Corning Museum of Glass, New York; Dallas Museum of Art, Texas; Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Speed Museum of Art, Louisville.
