Zach Gilliland, Sculptor and Owner at Artwork Installation LLC

Zach Gilliland

Zach was an extremely hyper child and only two things could calm him down: making art and playing soccer.

From an early age Zach had the ability to draw with both hands and kick with both feet. When one hand would tire from drawing he would swap to the other until that hand fatigued and then switch again.

According to his mother this cycle would go on for hours. His feet felt neglected though and he eventually put his passion for drawing down.

Soccer became Zach’s main physical creative outlet which led him into the NCAA. He played for Newberry College where he eventually received his studio art degree. After soccer practice one night, Zach stumbled into the ceramics studio and “re-found” his other passion.

Since that fateful night Zach has been delving farther into the art world, working as an artwork installer and sculptor.

He creates art with anything he can get his hands or feet on. For Zach, creation happens in the studio and on the soccer field.
