THE SKATEROOM presents Michael Dayton HERMANN
Michael Dayton Hermann is a New York City based multidisciplinary artist, award-winning arts professional, author, and lifelong skater. His artwork draws upon the inescapable bombardment of digital imagery to confront the familiar and examine the subconscious from unexpected perspectives. Hermann has exhibited consistently for the past 20 years following receipt of his MFA from Hunter College in NYC where he studied art theory with conceptual artist Robert Morris and executed his thesis under the advisement of Nari Ward. His polymath approach to life rejects easy categorization. He is as adept in his studio as he is at business, philanthropy, and public speaking. In his role at The Andy Warhol Foundation, Hermann conceived Andy Warhol: Machine Made, a ground-breaking online auction of five unique NFTs presented by Christie’s, in addition to developing numerous high-profile Warhol projects including The Andy Warhol Diaries docuseries on Netflix and collaborations with Comme des Garçons, Dior, Tiffany, Absolut and many others, generating nearly $100M in revenue to support the philanthropic work of The Andy Warhol Foundation. He is on the board of directors for the Children’s Museum of the Arts and in early 2024, his artwork will be the subject of an upcoming solo exhibition at Baxter Street in NYC.
