Ian Davenport

(b. 1966 in Sidcup, Kent, lives and works in London).

Ian Davenport studied at Goldsmiths' College of Art in London, graduating in 1988 with a B.A. in Fine Art. In the same year, he exhibited in the Damien Hirst-curated Freeze exhibition which first brought together many of the later-to-be Young British Artists. In 1991, he was nominated for the annual Turner Prize. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is included in many public collections such as the Tate, London, the Weltkunst Collection, Zurich, and the Dallas Museum of Art, Texas.

Many of Davenport's works are made by pouring paint onto a tilted surface and letting gravity spread the paint over the surface. He has usually worked on medium density fibreboard rather than canvas, and most often employs household gloss paint, such that the viewer can glean their own reflection in the work. He has made a number of diptychs and triptychs as well as single works.
