Visual art is one of the most appealing and entertaining art forms nowadays. Unlike performing art, it deals with the visual and graphical representation of ideas, conveying essential messages through imagery rather than through sounds and movement. Because of its genuine simplicity and accessibility, it rapidly becomes the area of focus for both artists and art collectors. Today, we want to tell you about one talented visual artist who comes across as a bright example of how artists should declare their intentions through art. Please meet Shandor Hassan and his magical installation art!
Meaningful installation art by Shandor Hassan
Shandor Hassan (b. 1968) is a visual artist with a BFA in Photography from the University of New Mexico. To give his art meaning and enhance knowledge, he started his career traveling throughout the US and Europe and taking part in different international study programs. His considerable experience, talent, and enthusiasm, eventually allowed Shandor Hassan to succeed in several art-related spheres, including furniture design, fine art photography, and installation art. Although the achievements of the artist are numerous, we want to focus specifically on his amazing art installations.
Shandor Hassan’s latest site-specific installation is called “The Dust: American Matter.” The main idea of this large-scale artwork, which is located in a former mushroom farming house at Street Road in Pennsylvania, is to draw people’s attention to American automobile culture and make the viewers mull over the role of gas stations and their major influence on the American landscape. It is indeed an impressive piece of installation art, comprised of many diverse works made either from recycled materials from rural Pennsylvania metal or auto recycling parts.
“The Dust: American Matter” is, without a doubt, a visually appealing experience that makes the viewer dive into thinking. We highly recommend that you get acquainted with this fresh and meaningful art installation by Shandor Hassan, as well as with other works by the talented visual artist, at your first opportunity. You can also enjoy the installation online at Street Road.
