Don CampbellCountry: United States
BiographyDon Campbell is an artist specializing in portrait and figurative sculptures. His medium of choice is water-based clay. “A storyteller in clay” is how he describes himself, with each sculpture telling as many stories as there are people who cast their gaze.
Don’s artistic and creative influences include Giovanni Lorenzo Bernini, a sculptor who was instrumental in introducing the Baroque period in the 1600s; Otto Scharmer, MIT professor and co-creator of the Theory U process for developing creativity through deep listening; and presencing.
Don worked as a graphic designer for several companies in his native Toronto. He was eventually lured to the U.S. to assume an art director role and freelanced for several advertising agencies. Don eventually launched his own agency, DJ Campbell Advertising & Marketing, which he has been running for more than 30 years.
