Martin Creed was born in 1968 in Wakefield, England. He studied at the Slade School of Fine Art between 1986 and 1990 and in 2001 won the Turner prize for his installation, Work No. 227: The lights going on and off, 2000. He lives and works in London, UK and Alicudi, Italy.
A conceptual artist, Creed works across multiple mediums including paint, sculpture, installation and music. Playing with definitions of art, he presents objects and ideas using a diverse range of techniques that have been described as reminiscent of Marcel Duchamp.
In 2015 Creed accepted the Tate Members commission for 2015-17. Every two years, an artist represented in the Tate collection is invited to become the Tate Members commissioned artist. This unique commission was conceived as a way of recognising and celebrating the vital support Tate Members provide to the four Tate galleries.
“The main problem is that life is difficult, I’m just trying to make my life better. In the case of colours, it makes me happy to look at these colours. Anything you can do to make your life better is really worth trying to do.”
To coincide with the commission Creed has generously donated the limited edition sculpture, Work No. 2609, 2015 in support of Tate. Each work is created using twenty-eight hand picked acrylic colours, an edition of 50, each work is unique.
Creed has exhibited widely including shows at Gavin Brown’s Enterprise, New York, Hauser and Wirth, New York, Hayward Gallery, London, Johnen Galerie, Berlin and Tate Britain, London.
