From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

David Batchelor (born 1955, Dundee, Scotland) is an artist and writer based in London.

A sculptor, artist, writer, (he is the author of Chromophobia) Batchelor is currently a tutor at the Royal College of Art.

He has shown work internationally in many exhibitions including the 26th Sao Paulo Biennale, “Days Like These” at Tate Britain [1], “Extreme Abstraction” at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery [2] in Buffalo, “Chromosexuals” at Galleri Bouhlou [3] in Bergen and “Amid Concrete, Clay and General Decay” at Konstfack Gallery in Stockholm. He is represented by Wilkinson Gallery [4] and Ingleby Gallery [5] in Edinburgh.

David Batchelor’s most recognised works are colourful lightbox installations using salvaged bits and pieces from the streets of London. Batchelor takes industrial debris – trolleys, shelving units, factory scrap – and transforms them into frames to hold assemblages of neon, perspex and found shopfront signs.

His works are held in various museum collections, including the Tate.[1]
