Marv Graff (M.F.A., fibers, 2016) merges the fields of avant-garde fashion, textile design, sculpture and historic preservation in his artwork to reimagine the purpose and aesthetic of old-world objects into contemporary sculpture. Each work conjures multiple meanings and speaks to Graff’s rich interest in cultural nuance and what he calls “the forgotten, swept aside objects” of the past, and deals with the power of artistic reappropriation through unexpected materials. His artwork has been featured in Women's Wear Daily, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and New York Magazine. One of his pieces is part of the permanent collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York. Graff lives and works in Savannah, Georgia.
