Dan Colen was born in 1979, New Jersey. He graduated with a BFA in Painting from the Rhode Island School of Art and Design in 2001. International exhibitions include the 2006 Whitney Biennial, New York; "USA Today," The Royal Academy, London; "Defamation of Character," PS1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island, New York; and "Fantastic Politics," The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design, Oslo. Colen is famous for having his first Gagosian exhibit in the galleries bathroom. His works look like oil paint in images, but they are in fact paintings made out of chewing gum. Yeah....chewing gum!
