Tao Urban received his BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design in 1993 and an MFA from the Cranbrook Academy of Arts in 2000. "I work in a multitude of mediums, ultimately resulting in installations of objects that relate to product/furniture/graphic design and architecture, which are usually centered around the social interaction these objects generate," he said.
He was approached by his friend, University of Redlands Assistant Professor Tommi Cahill to present a show at the Peppers Art Gallery. Urban described his upcoming show as a "mix of new and old works meant to give an idea of my overall artistic ideology, in regards to how we relate to objects and the environment."
Tao Urban currently lectures at California State University Long Beach in the Department of Design.
