Adam Dant’s narrative ink drawings and prints take London as their focus, detailing myths and contemporary observations that dwell upon the city’s financial and historic heart (from where he works, by the walls of the City).
Dant, much regarded as a modern-day Hogarth, was awarded The Rome Scholarship in printmaking in 1993 and The Jerwood Drawing prize in 2002 and more recently was appointed by parliament as ‘The Official artist of The 2015 UK General Election’.
Dant’s work is exhibited internationally and can be found in the collections of Tate Britain; MoMA, New York; The Victoria and Albert Museum; Museum of London; Musée d’art Contemporain, Lyon and various other public and private collections, including that of HRH The Prince of Wales; Deutsche Bank and UBS.
