Martin Creed
Over the past 30 years, the Turner Prize-winning artist Martin Creed (1968- ) has embraced a variety of techniques including sculpture, painting, neon, writing, film, installation, music, dance and performance. His pieces range from compositions for symphony orchestra to architectural commissions, public monuments and dance performances. He often works directly in the gallery or museum space before an exhibition, presenting his art not as a defined concept, but as something immediate, creative, live and participatory.
