Born in Edinburgh in 1962, Kenny Hunter studied sculpture at Glasgow School of Art between 1983 and 1987. Since then he has exhibited extensively in both Britain and abroad. His most recent major public commission is a war memorial for the London Borough of Southwark. He is also a lecturer at Edinburgh College of Art and their current Director of Outreach.
With unexpected uses of scale, material and subject matter the sculpture of Kenny Hunter runs counter to the expectations of traditional monuments. His artworks embrace ambiguity as a positive position thereby encouraging the viewer towards ethical engagement.
