New York based artist Michael Dayton Hermann creates work which confronts the familiar from an unexpected perspective. He has produced various guerilla exhibitions since 2002 and participated in numerous exhibitions at venues including Envoy Gallery, Lombard Fried Gallery, WhiteBox, Exit Art and Longwood Art Gallery. Hermann received his MFA from Hunter College where he studied art theory with conceptual artist Robert Morris and executed his thesis under the advisement of Nari Ward. In 2016, he established Frances Saint Charles, a company focused on producing culturally relevant projects. Hermann has also been the Director of Licensing at The Andy Warhol Foundation since 2005 during which time the Foundation has received 10 major industry awards. Hermann has developed notable high-profile Warhol projects including collaborations with Calvin Klein, Dior, Comme des Garcons, Absolut, Supreme, and Perrier and conceived of an acclaimed monograph of Warhol’s Polaroids published by TASCHEN in 2015.
