Geoff Banzhof is a Senior Fabricator at Meow Wolf and is originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Geoff has a BS from Northern Arizona University in Environmental Sciences and Biology and spent 8 years conducting ecological surveys throughout the southwestern United States (AZ, NM, and CO, which included three years in the Grand Canyon). He is a multifaceted artist who is inspired by the intersection of structures and patterns of nature, and the absurdities of the modern human experience. Specifically, he is skilled in repurposing and reimagining materials in a variety of mediums, starting nearly twenty years ago at Don Adams’ Metal Studio in Nashville, TN (2003). For the past six years he has created steel artwork as a senior fabricator with Meow Wolf, where he played a crucial role in fabricating many elements of the Santa Fe House of Eternal Return and contributed to Omega Mart and Denver's Convergence Station. Geoff’s artwork has been shown locally at Offroad Productions in Santa Fe, NM. He is a certified structural welder and is also a member of the Santa Fe art collective, The Squirrels.
