Tom Bevan

Tom bevans Tom Bevan is an assemblage mosaic artist who works out of Brooklyn in New York City. His sculptures and household objects remind me of the work of the 20th Century collagist Kurt Schwitters who used found objects to create his art. Bevan uses pieces of broken crockery, small objects and tiles and embeds them in plaster. For many years he worked out of the Crane Artist Studios which was part of 5 Pointz in Long Island City, Queens, New York.

Bevan is a Belfast native who has been the recipient of many foundation grants and several prestigious residencies. Bevan travels overseas to exhibitions where his work is showing. “I’m trying to connect more with Ireland,” he said. “I’m better known there because of the work I do about the Troubles.”

Bevan, who does assemblage sculptures from found materials, spends periods living and working in a rented house in Glencar, County Down in Ireland, that has no indoor running water or electricity. He first came to New York as a resident in the P.S. 1 International Studio Program.
