Michael Craig-Martin

Throughout his career, through work in many different media, Craig -Martin has explored the expressive potential of commonplace objects and images. His best known works include An oak tree of 1973, in which he claimed to have changed a glass of water into an oak tree; his large-scale black and white wall drawings; and his intensely coloured paintings, installations, and public commissions.

Over the past fifteen years his exhibitions and site specific installations have appeared in numerous museums and public galleries including Kunsthaus Bregenz, Centre Pompidou - Paris, MoMA - New York and The National Art Centre - Tokyo. A retrospective of his work was presented at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 1989 and at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin in 2006. He was an Artist Trustee of Tate from 1989-99, received a CBE in 2001 and was elected to the Royal Academy in 2006.
