Eugene Daub began his career as an art director for an advertising firm. His first job in sculpture was for The Franklin Mint where he developed skills in relief sculpture.
He taught at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Ca from 1993 to 2002. He has been an instructor at the Scottsdale Artists’ School from 1991 to present and is the designer of the first Philadelphia Liberty Medal, which that city awards every year to a champion of world peace.
Daub has exhibited extensively and has worked in numerous public collections, including the Helsinki Art Museum, the British Museum; the Smithsonian Institution; The National Statuary Hall Collection in the United States Capitol and the United States National Park Service.
Daub has created over 40 major monuments in the U.S. in the last 30 years. He is also one of the pioneer members of the American Medallic Sculpture Association, which pushed American contemporary medallic art into the international contemporary movement.
He won both of the nation's highest awards for excellence in medallic art: The Saltus Award from the American Numismatic Society, and the Gold medal, from the American Numismatic Association.
Daub is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society.
