Dustin Yellin b. 1975



Dustin Yellin is a contemporary artist living in Brooklyn, New York. He is best known for his sculptural paintings that use multiple layers of glass, each covered in detailed imagery, to create a single intricate, three-dimensional collage. His work is notable both for its massive scale and its fantastic, dystopian themes.

Yelling combines his artistic practice with entrepreneurship, reflected in his contemporary art hub, Pioneer Works, Brooklyn, and his magazine of artist interviews, Intercourse. For him these projects are interconnected, as his description of Pioneer Works exemplifies: “For me, it’s a sculpture. It’s just like you’re working in layers you’re seeing through, whether it’s layers of glass or layers of people, and eventually all those layers are in harmony and in unison to make something like this possible.”
