Chris Daniggelis
Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies

MFA, Printmaking, Ohio State University, OH, 1996

BA, Art & English Literature, Wake Forest University, NC,1993


Daniggelis makes elaborate one-of-a-kind prints using shapes from a simple template, subverting both the purpose of printmaking as a way to make multiples and also the romance of the expressive artist's hand.

He has exhibited his work with Aminha Robinson, has been included in exhibitions juried by Donna DeSalvo (Chief Curator of the Whitney Musuem), Helen Molesworth (Chief Curator of the ICA, in Boston). He received an international residency from the Ohio Arts Council to research in Dresden, Germany and will return in 2013 as an International Fulbright Scholar. He printed for Jonathan Hammer of Matthew Marks Gallery, NYC, for Richard Serra with Master Printer Luther Davis, of Noblet Serigraphie, NYC and printed for Dard Hunter III. Before coming to the University of Missouri he taught at Columbus College of Art & Design as an Associate Professor and at Ohio State University.

In his spare time, Daniggelis collects antique typewriters. He has also been a long distance runner - winning, among other things, the Penn Relays 3000m in distance running in 1988.
