Liz Craft (b. 1970, Los Angeles, California) is an artist based in Berlin. In 1994 she obtained a B.A. at Otis Parsons, Los Angeles, and an M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles, M.F.A. in 1997. Her figurative yet surreal sculptures are assemblages of traditional craft and industrial materials, through which she explores notions of cliché, counterculture and pre-conceived notions of marginalised people. Playful and surreal, her works shed new light and meaning on to familiar objects.
