A heretic in the art world


Dan Ferguson and his wife Nisha, a pair of expat Canadians in San Miguel de Allende, make impressive ceramic sculptures - not to mention a good living. According to Dan, some visitors express amazement that the couple runs a commercially-viable art enterprise, DaNisha Sculpture.

While branded "sell-outs" for their approach, the Fergusons make no apologies. Dan says most students are "brainwashed" in art school that there's no living to be made in art. He and Nisha are proving the starving artist stereotype false.

Here's what I wrote on them in the Miami Herald, Mexico Edition: http://www.mexiconews.com.mx/24033.html
