Next Level Creations is a collaboration between two Fargo, North Dakota artists Tom Hagen and Bryan Vidger.  Together they create original 3D relief sculptures based on great moments in sports history - taking art to the Next Level.

About the Artists

Bryan Vidger:

Born: Fargo, North Dakota (1961), Lives in Fargo, North Dakota

I have explored and experimented with various forms of photography from a young age, and have formal training in graphic arts.  My passions are my faith, family, friends, sports, and art. 

 

It is a great thrill for me to relive a great sport moment and see it come full circle from a concept to a 3D sculpture on the wall.  Tom and I have spent several years working to create a new and exciting relief sculpture process. I hope you will enjoy these pieces where art and sport meet as much as we enjoy creating them.

Tom Hagen:
Born: East Grand Forks, Minnesota (1968), Lives in Fargo, North Dakota

I came to the FM area in 1987, and currently live in a little 1910 fixer-upper in a historic south Fargo neighborhood. I love the area I live in for its wonderful character homes, beautiful trees, and great people.  I enjoy everything outdoors, even shoveling snow and mowing the yard. I am thankful for my family and friends.


I attended MSUM, started my career in graphic communications, and have been involved for many years in the business world. I am very excited about taking what was a simple conversation I had with my neighbor Bryan in my front yard a few years ago to starting a new chapter with Next Level Creations. Our goal is to create new and very unique sculptures that anyone would be proud to have, enjoy, and pass on from one generation to the next. Bryan and I hope to take art to the next level and we hope you enjoy our creations.
