Light Sculptures, Smithsonian & Cave Paintings With Neon Artist Craig Kraft

Craig Kraft knows too well the feeling of rendering sculptures incorporating details in neon, he’s been at it since 1983. Whether it’s being a faculty member of the Smithsonian Institution Studio Arts Program, regularly teaching neon to newcomers, or being commissioned to create monumental rolled aluminum light sculptures, the ongoing impact of his work is felt throughout the nation. Which is why, as Craig tells Max, is interested in where it all that began, from studying early cave drawings and markings to creating his Ground Zero Series - inspired by years of graffiti on the walls of the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
