Alexander DiJulio is a sculpture and installation artist from Philadelphia. Primarily drawing inspiration from his immediate surroundings, he collects, gathers and analyzes the found object and presents it in a new setting. Items such as apples, wood, bread, milk and live animals frequently appear in his work. Facilitating casts of these re-appropriated items or altering them superficially in juxtaposition to the original, the artist examines the notion of signs. DiJulio graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore city and has shown in numerous settings from museum to gallery to the public sphere. He currently lives and works in Dallas, Texas.
