Nick Waplington

Nick Waplington is a British artist living and working in the UK and US. He is the recipient of the European Photo Award at the Rencontre D’Arles Photo Festival (1990), an ICP Infinity Award (1993), and he represented the UK at the 2001 Venice Biennale. Over the last thirty years Waplington has developed a body of work marked by eclecticism and juxtaposition, using both traditional and new media to push the boundaries of contemporary art practice. While best known as a photographer, Waplington also works extensively with painting, video, computer-generated imagery, sculpture, and found material. In addition to his solo projects, Waplington has also collaborated with a wide array of other artists, from the Mexican conceptualist Miguel Calderón; artist David Shrigley; writer Irvine Welsh; musicians Tricky and Orbital; film director Paul Thomas Anderson; and the fashion designer Alexander McQueen.
