Gunnar Kortenbach⎪NYC Artist and Designer

About Gunnar

They are a polydactyl artist and designer who received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Cooper Union in New York, NY. Their expertise extends to responsive web design, portrait photography, brand identity, and video performance.

Before moving to NY, Gunnar lived in Miami, Florida where they raised chickens. They are the only 11 fingered person the vast majority of people have ever met! Gunnar hopes to make the masses aware through their practice that there is indeed life outside the supposed gender/sexual binary and our society's base-10 thinking.

Gunnar was the front cover of WAIF Magazine's February 2020 issue. Some of their editorial photography has been purchased for commercial use by SEE Eyewear

They showed a short film at Anthology Film Archives as part of the Cooper Union Film Festival.

Their likeness has also been featured for fashion prowess in NYLON Magazine and Thread Report. They have also been seen on the social media of SEE Eyewear, The Cooper Union, and The Cooper Union's website, in addition to being published in Cooper's Alumni magazine.
