Artist and biologist Brandon Ballengée creates transdisciplinary artworks inspired from his ecological field and laboratory research.
In the summer of 2013, the first career survey of Ballengeé’s work debuted at the Château de Chamarande (Essonne, France), and travelled to Museum Het Domein (Sittard, Netherlands) in 2014. A mid-career retrospective of his work will open in the fall of 2016 at the University of Wyoming Art Museum (Laramie, Wyoming) and travel throughout the USA.
In 2015 he received an artist fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts. He holds a Ph.D. in Transdisciplinary Art and Biology from the University of Plymouth (England). Currently, he is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Biological Sciences Department at Louisiana State University (Baton Rouge, Louisiana).
