David Tremlett

Biography

David Tremlett is a well known English artist born in 1945 in Dartford (UK) who actually lives and works in Bovingdon (UK). He is a sculptor, installation artist and photographer.

His first solo exhibition was in London in the early seventies, where he rose to prominence alongside artists such as Richard Long and Gilbert and George. Since the 1980s, his primary media has been pastel. Despite the time and attention required by all of his site-specific works, Tremlett does not limit himself to locations that will ensure permanence.  Tremlett’s palette has also been influenced over the years by his travel to execute site-specific works in places such as Malawi, India, Italy and Texas.

In 1992 he was shortlisted for the famous Turner Price “for his many wall drawings displayed around the world, most notably at the Kestnerrgeschelschafft in Hanover (GE). Tremlett has exhibited internationally in private galleries and major museums with 10 catalogues and several artist books to his credit. His extensive exhibition history includes solo exhibitions at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris (FR); the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam (NL); Musee des Beaux Arts, Grenoble (FR); Pecci Museum, Prato (IT) and the Museum of Modern Art in New York (USA).
