Atticus Bergman

Atticus Bergman’s Crayola crayon drawings have been featured on the covers of books and scholarly periodicals, as well as in magazines such as Artforum, Cultured, and n+1.

In New York, his drawings have been shown at Kai Matsumiya and James Fuentes, where he had his first solo exhibition in 2017. In 2022, Gilles Heno-Coe curated a special exhibition of his work that explored the tension between the abstract notion of personal charisma and the concrete structure of physical anatomy.

Writing for Artforum in 2019, Ottessa Moshfegh listed Atticus Bergman’s Crayola crayon drawings as one of her favorite objects from cultural history, alongside the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, the films of Ingmar Bergman, and the recorded songs of Billie Holiday. 

Before he began making visual art, Atticus studied the intersection between psychoanalytic, philosophical, and aesthetic forms of knowledge at Stanford University.
