Dylan Egon was born in 1966 in New York City and is currently based in Jersey City, NJ. He studied Anthropology and Archeology at Spring Hill College in Mobile, Alabama and later studied Film at City Tech University in New York. Egon works in a variety of mediums (collage, assemblage, sculpture) and often uses objects from his vast personal collection as focal points in his work. In a review for The New York Times, Benjamin Genocchio referred to Egon's work as “sites of cultural compression, fetishization and wonder.” (this description was borrowed from the artist's page on the Jonthan Levine Gallery website.)
