1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
My multidisciplinary practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live arts projects. Living in the UK but working internationally since 1997, I have created a number of extraordinary art projects which have excited and inspired people around the globe.
With many of my artworks in permanent collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the Wellcome Collection in London, he also tours my art installations to art festivals and museums worldwide. In 2019 alone, I had over 100 exhibitions in 28 different countries.
2.What does your work aim to say?
Learning from each artwork and moving on, I am is continually re-inventing my arts practice. As my practice is well known yet quite diverse, in 2016 I was described by Bloomberg Television as “probably the most famous artist you’ve never heard of”. Over time, narratives connecting my different artworks have emerged and continue to be developed.
Published in 2020 the new book “Luke Jerram: Art, Science & Play” provides a fascinating insight into my evolving practice. With over fifty colour photographs the publication delves into the mind of an artist known for his imaginative ability to combine art, science and play.Of Earth and Sky © Luke Jerram
