BIO

AOMIII, or Arthur O. Mohagen III currently resides in Madison, Wisconsin, where he earned his MFA from the University of Wisconsin - Madison in 2006. Previously, he earned his BFA from the State University of New York - Fredonia, not far from his hometown of Olean, NY. The only son of a high school Art teacher, Arthur has always had an interest in the arts.

AOMIII's work picks apart common elements of society and popular culture - most often fashion models or rebellious youth - placing them in unfamiliar environments or against unnatural backgrounds. The viewer is confronted immediately by a beautiful face buried in makeup or high fashion, but only later realizes that things are not quite what they appear. Smooth lines, clean surfaces and beautiful faces are a misleading glimpse into AOMIII's work.
