DAKOTA REDINGTON PRATT is an award winning artist who most recently won the Lincoln Innovation Award. His artistic focus is on functional sculptures & contemporary furniture. After graduating from the Columbus College of Art & Design with a BA, Dakota began exhibiting his work in art galleries & shows across the country. Claes Oldenburg, a primary influence on Dakota, is an iconic American sculptor, best known for his public art installations typically featuring very large replicas of everyday objects. Falling easily into this Pop genre, Dakota starts each piece by using wooden or metal bases. He then fastens vintage bottle caps, flattened with a sledge hammer onto his forms. Each piece is then covered with an epoxy resin to create a polished finish.

His everyday objects are enticing pieces of fine art that immediately attract us like a good can of Campbells Soup on the shelf, while the intelligence of his design makes us greatly appreciate his strong artistic capability.
