Anderson Pigatt

Born, 1928 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA

From the Black Art: Ancestral Legacy catalogue:

Anderson J. Pigatt was born in 1928 in Baltimore. He studied woodworking and carpentry on the G.I. Bill and soon after began to apprentice in New York with the well known furniture craftsman, James Leach. It was his training in the exacting craft of woodworking which led him to consider sculpture as a means of expressing his ideas. The transition led to some powerful works created as a spiritual response to the often troubling dynamics of black life in America.”
