In Ken's Circle: Artist Olafur Eliasson

 

As a personal art collector, Ken Zuckerman has a knack for seeking out the most uniquely talented artists in the community. One of these primaries is Olafur Eliasson, a European artist who is “driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self,” as cited in the biographical section of his website. 

 

Eliasson is known for a variety of art types that include a diverse selection of photography, film, painting, sculpture and more. This alone puts him on par with the Zinc Developments brand, in that he bases his work on the undeniable quality of understanding an audience and demographic.
