Solomon Kagan is a mixed-media artist who lives and works in Los Angeles, California. He has been a professional designer and artist for over two decades. His background in architecture and design have informed his process, yet there is an unplanned element of sentiment incorporated into his work that transcends traditional design and artistry which allows his creations to become more than the iconic imagery they often portray, connecting his audience in truly unique ways. The most powerful force in the evolution of his process has been the incorporation of sentimental garments and objects into his work. Solomon was born in Israel in 1976 and raised in the United States. He attended North Carolina State University where he completed majors in Industrial Design and Architecture in 2000. He received his Masters degree in Architecture at the University of California at Los Angeles in 2006.
