Landon Moreis was born and raised in Attica, New York and now resides in Buffalo, New York. He received his bachelor degree from SUNY Buffalo State in both Fiber Arts and Apparel Design, with a focus on installation art and runway garment production.
His current work focuses on the dissection of a basic jersey knit t-shirt into its original components of construction. He uses the five unique elements (side seam, torso, collar, sleeve and hem) to inspire the creation of fibrous sculptures like Hems. Hems is a three piece installation that was assembled entirely out of t-shirt hems and suspends in the Malt House at Silo City. Landon's S/S19 runway collection was also created using the same medium and won "First Place Senior Collection" at Runway 12: Reawakening.
Landon's previous pieces have been exhibited at the Czurles-Nelson Gallery, winning the "John Jauquet Craft Art Design Award”, "Arts and Humanities Dean's Entrepreneurship Award”, "Margaret E. Bacon Best of Studio Award" and “Nancy Belfer Fiber Design” awards. Landon’s S/S18 runway collection was awarded "Best Student Collection" at Runway 11: Interconnect.
