Growing up has always been an adventure for Gabriel Mellan. With his childhood divided up in Washington DC, Hawaii and Tokyo, the transient and multi-cultural experiences have continued on into his adulthood. Focusing his art making on interactive sculpture and installations involving sound, motion and light, his work is fueled by material, process and minimalistic forms. Gabriel is a graduate of the Corcoran College of Art + Design and is teaching and making art in the D.C. area. His sculpture, installations and photography have been published and exhibited in Finland, China, Japan and the U.S.
