Ian Davenport was born in Kent in 1966. He is well known for his abstract paintings, which explore process and materiality. In recent years his work has consisted of carefully poured lines of acrylic paint down a surface, which puddle and pool at the bottom. This technique allows him to explore complex arrange-ments of line and colour. Over the past ten years he has turned his attention to screenprinting and etching. In 1991 he was short-listed for the Turner Prize, for which he remains the youngest ever nominee, and in 1999 was a prize winner in the John Moores Exhibition. Davenport has completed major commissions including Poured Lines: Southwark Street, London (2006), which is one of the largest permanent public artworks in the UK. His work is held in important museum collections including, Arts Council of Great Britain; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Von der Heydt Museum, Wuppertal and Museum of Modern Art, La Spezia.
