Doug Cannell is an award-winning sculptor whose works have been exhibited in museums and art galleries widely in the US. He was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1957. Cannell earned a BFA degree from Wayne State University (Detroit, MI) in 1980, he also studied art at the College for Creative Studies (Detroit, MI), and now works from his studio in Highland Park, Michigan.  He began working predominantly in clay, but in the early 1990’s he began using steel as the basis for his work.  His sculpture is almost entirely abstract. Often made of rusted, reclaimed steel, his work is punctuated with other materials like shiny stainless steel, wood, clay, copper, encaustic and rubber. His sculpture is distinguished by his use of contrasting materials, textures, and the juxtaposition of the organic and the industrial. Cannell’s artwork is also informed by his work as a graphic designer, a field in which he has worked steadily since 1985.
