Daniel Bejar was born in the Bronx, and lives in Brooklyn, NY. His multi-media practice utilizes intervention, sculpture, and photography to appropriate historical residue as strategy to evoke the past into the present while posing critical questions. Bejar received his BFA from the Ringling College of Art & Design, Sarasota, FL and an MFA from the State University of New York, New Paltz in 2007. In 2011 Bejar was selected to Smack Mellon’s Hot Picks program, and recently completed a residency at SOMA, Mexico City D.F., and has participated in residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT, LMCC Swing Space Program, and the AIM Program at the Bronx Museum of Art, NY. Bejar’s work has been exhibited internationally, with recent venues including “The (S) Files Bienal 2011”, El Museo Del Barrio, NY, University of New Haven, CT; Artnews Projects, Berlin, Germany; and Bronx Museum of the Arts, Bronx, NY.
