About Scott

Scott Radke was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and grew up in the nearby suburb of Strongsville. Radke has experimented with various media throughout his life and currently focuses on the creation of sculptural hybrid creatures with an extraordinarily, innocent, yet dark twist. In 1999 the popularity of his marionettes allowed him to leave his mind-numbing job at a bed-frame factory to pursue his creative passion on a full-time basis. His marionettes have been featured in films including Voices In My Head, a BBC documentary directed by David Malone; Desolation Sound, starring Jennifer Beals; God in the Machine, starring Thomas Jay Ryan; and Birthday Massacre’s music video, Blue. Radke’s work has been published internationally in magazines including Bizarre (England), DPI (Taiwan), Refused, and Skratch. *He has* shown his work at BLK/MRKT Gallery (CA), M Modern Gallery (CA), Strychnin Gallery (Germany), Jonathan Levine’s former Tin Man Alley (PA), and CB’s 313 (NYC) among others.

I love Scott's work. It's nice to see someone making this kind of art that is 3 dimensional.

i understand how people might view my work as sad or full of despair. i don't always come across as i would like. i don't see them as having any more sadness or despair as say Eeyore. i'd like them to create a funny/sad feeling to the viewer but they are what they are.
Thanks for the Sorren coment!

Reading these comments kinda make me sad that some of them don't understand the despair on the faces, the fish espically gives me a sense of sadness. They are extraordinary however and I would love to see them up close. The fish's face is so complex in ways I'm almost mesmerized by how much I associate with him and has become my computer's background.
