MP LANDIS

BIO

M P Landis’s work is a palimpsest of the processes, materials and emotions of his existence.

He has collaborated with musician Tom Abbs, visual artists Paul Bowen and Bert Yarborough, writers Nick Flynn and Fred Schmalz, and many others.

M P Landis has taught at the summer workshop program at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, MA. He is a Creative and A&R Consultant for Northern-Spy Records.

His work is represented in many private and public collections, including the New York Public Library, the Peabody Essex Museum, the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, the DeCordova Museum, the Naples Museum of Art, and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum.

Before moving to Brooklyn in 1996, he lived year-round in Provincetown, MA, and spent his childhood traveling around the world with his Mennonite missionary parents.
