Born in 1974 in Los Angeles, Tom Fruin is a contemporary American sculptor. Known for his large scale installations, Fruin most commonly uses steel and highly colored plexiglass to create monumental sculptures referencing local building structures. He describes his drive to make art that is publicly accessible, as well as sustainable by working with reclaimed materials and alternative energy. Fruin’s largest installation to date, the Water tower series, is installed on multiple rooftops across New York City and around the country. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn, New York City.
Other large scale work has been exhibited in public plazas in Prague, Vienna, Copenhagen and throughout the United States.
