Oren Sherman has designed exclusive artwork for a wide variety of clients that include Steuben Glass, PepsiCo, the Disney Corporation, the Olympics, Visa, Hermès, Mobil Oil, and the U.S. Postal Service among others, developing custom artwork that is colorful, sophisticated, and contemporary. He is an alumnus and professor at the acclaimed Rhode Island School of Design where he recently launched an innovative giving campaign kicked off by leaving his own digital IP to the institution. His work lives at the intersection between visual storytelling, art and architecture, focusing on applying two-dimensional work in a three-dimensional way using the tools of narrative, color, and pattern to create an experiential space. His upcoming presentation on June 25 at TEDxProvincetown, Finding Creativity: A Solo Journey to a Connected Place, complements his work at Elkus Manfredi Architects where he crafts strategic narratives and original artworks, creating a multilevel, subliminal experience that resonates as an unspoken message.
