Coates and Scarry Interview Derek


Who is Derek Weisberg?

AAAHHHH, who is Derek Weisberg? It is a question I am still trying to figure out and I guess, hope to be pursuing till I die.

For now, I am 27, a Californian bay area native. I reside in the “West’s Best Bet”, that’s Oakland for those who don’t know. I am a workaholic and find heaven in my studio blasting mid 90?s and or obscure underground rap music. I am an artist, a creator of objects, a sculptor. I primarily make figurative sculpture out of clay, but also sculpt with other materials, draw, paint, make prints, and pursue anything else to keep me interested, curious, to push myself and create something visually in whatever form the piece dictates.
