Oliver Kellhammer is an ecological artist, educator, activist and writer. Through his botanical interventions and public art projects, he seeks to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His work facilitates the processes of environmental regeneration by engaging the botanical and socio-political underpinnings of the landscape. It continues to evolve and has taken
various forms such as small-scale urban eco-forestry, inner city community agriculture and the restoration of eroded railway ravines. He divides his time between his home in New York's Alphabet City, where he is a part-time assistant professor in Sustainable Systems at Parsons, and rural British Columbia.
