Martin Creed (born 1968) is an artist and musician living and working in London, England. Creed completed his formal art education at the Slade School of Art in London, and went on to win the 2001 Turner Prize from the Tate Gallery for his Work No. 227, the lights going on and off installation. Most know for his long, descriptive titles, Creed has created minimalist installations and paintings for exhibits in Milan, New York, Liverpool, London, and Berlin. His work is currently on exhibit at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art.
Creed’s sculpture for the MCA Chicago plaza was created especially for the exhibit. The sculpture will be on display through May 2013, and compliments Creed’s artist residency with MCA. As a musician and artist, Creed displays a humorous, minimalist approach, creating sculptures and neon signs, poetically placed objects, murals, and more. Creed expresses himself in many artistic ways, as a musician and a visual artist, combing the visual arts with performance art and dance.
