Los Angeles based artist Lisa Lapinski's sculpture work incorporates wood and wire, cement and clay -- as well as painting, photography, drawing, and more unconventional materials such as ornate wallpaper, nail salon advertisements, boxed foodstuffs, and Snoopy figurines.

Her work has been included in exhibitions at the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the UCLA Hammer Museum, the 2006 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and at many other institutions.

In 2008 she was the subject of a MOCA Focus solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. Lapinski is represented by the Johann Konig gallery in Berlin, Taka Ishii Gallery in Tokyo, Galerie Mezzanin in Vienna, and Richard Telles Fine Art in Los Angeles.

Awards include the American Center Foundation grant for exhibition at Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis, Minnesota and the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship for Installation Art.

She has a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego, an advanced course in the Visual Arts, taught by Haim Steinbach, Summer Session, Como, Italy, and an MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
