About Dana Blickensderfer
An artist mainly working in painting and drawing, Dana Blickensderfer is also the founder of Provoke Art and the co-founder of iBoss Advertising. Based between New York and Tampa (Florida), Blickensderfer draws her inspiration from her personal biography relating to her family legacy: The Blickensderfers. Her most recent series of oil paintings are constructed images portraying the actual typewriter the Blickensderfer from the 1900s. She intertwines images from the actual object, the original advertising and posters of the era creating a kaleidoscope of colors; shifting between figuration and gestural abstraction. Blickensderfer becomes the bridge between the past and the present, the private and the public, the personal and the universal.
In 2014, Blickensderfer was the recipient of the Milton and Sally Avery Scholarship Award to study at the New York Studio School. In 2013, she was a finalist of the Olympics Art Competition in Orlando (Florida) and part of the Celebration of the Arts Exhibition curated by the Bay Area Museums directors in Tampa.

About Provoke Art
In 2010, provoke art was founded and developed in hopes to make meaningful contributions to the art world, integrating artists’ inspirations of the past and present combined with contemporary artistic genius.
The provoke art video projects developed with film directors birthed performance art for Dana and other artists’ collaborations. Blickensderfer is placed painting a live exhibit in select New York City locations. She plans to produce many of these projects in the coming year with provoke art affiliates. This is the epitome of the provoke art movement – to create works that stimulate thought and emotion; provoke connection and interaction with the common denominator being art.
