Artist Statement

I am an an artist and tiny house builder in Oakland, California. I use found materials, including illegally dumped items, to build unique structures at a cost of less than $100.

The Homeless Homes Project is an asymmetrical approach to modern living. Collective ideas, good will, and basic construction skills unite to repurpose materials from illegal street dumping, commercial waste, and excess household items into viable living spaces. Each structure is unique and all homes are mobile to accommodate the nomadic life style of homeless residents, while avoiding the complexities of permanent structures.

Gregory Kloehn is one of the exhibiting artists for Shelter: Crafting a Safe Home.
