Anders Ruhwald, b. 1974, Denmark, lives and works at Cranbrook Academy of Art outside of Detroit, USA. He graduated from the Royal College of Art in London in 2005. Ruhwald has had more than 20 solo exhibitions in the last 10 years in museums and galleries around the world including Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (UK), The Museum of Art and Design (Denmark) and the Cranbrook Art Museum (USA). During the same time, his work has been shown in more than 80 group shows including Fondation d'Entreprise Ricard (Paris), Pinakotek der Moderne (Munich), Taipei Yingge Museum (Taiwan) and Kunsthal Charlottenborg (Copenhagen) and other venues. Ruhwald has been represented in over 20 public museum collections. Even though his work is not always vessel based, Ruhwald argues that all of his sculpture flows one way or another, "I guess I as much a potter as a painter. The pot is my canvas and the world is my ashtray!" To learn more about this artist please visit cfileonline.org.
