Born and raised in rural Eastern Washington, Dan John Anderson spent his formative years in Portland, Oregon where he studied at the Oregon College of Art & Craft. In 2007 he co-founded Von Tundra, a Portland based art and design collective. In 2012, on the heels of a well run course with Von Tundra and the Pacific Northwest, Anderson moved to Joshua Tree, California. After a few years of working in the studios of artists Andrea Zittel and Alma Allen he's now re-established his own creative endeavor making large-scale unique hand-made sculptures and functional objects.
Also currently in the works for Anderson is WAY WAY WAY : a three-pronged community driven outlet that encompasses a space for short term stays and a means for presenting and promoting both local and traveling creative talents.
