Barnaby Barford is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and has exhibited internationally, with major solo shows across Europe and the US. His work had been acquired by public and private collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum and MoFA.
From the witty cultural critique that characterised the early porcelain figurines to the more recent social commentary of installations and word drawings, Barford uses familiar iconography to subvert the telling of ancient cautionary tales within a contemporary context. His research explores the fundamental questions driving human nature in terms of morality, conflict between good or evil, lack of happiness, and society’s incessant need for growth.
