David Blandy (b. 1976) lives and works in Brighton and London. He studied at Chelsea College of Art and The Slade School of Art. Blandy has established his terrain through a series of investigations into the multiple cultural forces that inform and influence him, ranging from his love of hip hop and soul, to computer and role playing games, geopolitical events and climate cataclysm. His works move between performance, video and installation.

Kiasma Contemporary Art Museum, Helsinki, Finland; Tate Modern, London, UK; The Baltic, Gateshead, UK; Turner Contemporary, Margate, UK; Spike Island, Bristol, UK; Künstlerhaus Stuttgart, Germany; MoMA PS1, New York, USA, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai, China.
