who we are


Kerry Dikken


Blasted Art, Inc., was founded in 1999, by Kerry Dikken.  Kerry was the President of Blasted Art for over 20 years until his passing in 2021.  Kerry was an internationally renowned sandblasting artist whose work can be seen nationally, internationally, and especially around his hometown of Minneapolis/St Paul in places like the W Hotel, Hilton Hotel, W.A. Frost, Target Field, Mpls/St Paul Int'l Airport, Loring Park, MN State Fair, Como Park, the 35W Bridge Memorial in Gold Medal Park, and many, many more.

Craig David Jacobson is the current owner and President of Blasted Art.  Craig started work as Kerry's apprentice in 2009 and worked on and off with Kerry for over a decade. When a big project came in that Kerry couldn't do alone, Kerry called Craig to come help. Craig also started a small retail sandblasting business on the side selling custom sandblasted gifts and small custom art pieces.  Craig learned everything he knows about sandblasting from Kerry.

He says "Kerry was the Picasso of sandblasting, and it was the biggest privilege to be able to work for him.  I am so grateful for everything he taught me, and everything I do with Blasted Art is with him in mind.  Wherever he is, I hope I make him proud."
