Dason Coyote Culver is a multi-media artist with a leaning focus towards Murals and Immersive Installations. He often creates environments that revolve around ideas of challenging perceptions, questioning reality, and manifesting change. These environments consist of playful narratives that reveal and reflect upon commonalities within the human experience and how these experiences connect us all at a sacral root.
With fingers and toes dipped in multiple creative pools; his ever-growing portfolio includes work within the realms of Graphic Design, Painting, Print, Film, Wood, Metal, Glass, Stone, Immersive Installation, Fashion Fabrication, Technology Manipulation, and general Artistic Emancipation.
Currently, Dason holds an AFA in Sculpture from SFCC and a BFA in Studio Arts from the Institute of American Indian Arts. On any given day you may find him lurking abandoned ruins throughout New Mexico, collaborating with the many minds of Meow Wolf as part of the Merchandise Team, or creating live and public art at events throughout the Southwest.
