Artist Herbert Hoover has been living in New York and having fun with art for over 15 years. From kinetic sculptures for the Blue Man Group to industrial lamps for Runaway Bride - if he can amuse others with metal, he will. Hoover's work is in the permanent collection of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and in galleries and shops around the country.
Presently, Hoover's work follows in the wonderful tradition of pop art. Hoover casts American convenience food, such as crackers and cookies, in pewter to create a delicious sculpture that is realistic, humorous and ironic all at once.
