First Attempt at Artist Bio

Spencer Agoston was born June 11 1987. Being a Gemini he takes on multiple roles when working, limited only by the need to constantly be undertake projects out of his comfort range. A painter, designer, sculptor, woodworker, an artisan, just about any process draws his desire. While still a student at the Maryland institute college, he takes full advantage of facilities and faculty at his disposal. Each and every work created begins with playfully bouncing ideas back and forth, researching, experimenting and prototyping. Resulting in work that varies from wheelchairs that walk on crutches, carefully carved vessels and bowls made of ceramic or wood, color abstractions on methodical paintings, to solid beams of wood that glow from the the inside. He is the recipient of numerous grants and Scholarships, including Ohio Distinguished Artist Scholarship, and Mica Talent Grant. His photography and paintings have been in numerous group shows and exhibitions at both Mica and City hall of Columbus Ohio.
