David Tremlett


David Tremlett (b.1945) is an English sculptor, installation artist and photographer. He currently lives and works in Bovingdon, Hertfordshire, England. He is married to Laure Genillard who runs an art space in London.

Tremlett attended Falmouth College of Art from 1962 to 1963 where he was told that he was 'useless', before studying sculpture at Birmingham School of Art from 1963 until 1966 and then at the Royal College of Art in London. He travelled from the early 1970s in North America and Australia and later in the Middle East and Africa.

His first solo exhibition was with Nigel Greenwood Gallery in London in the early seventies, where he rose to prominence alongside artists such as Richard Long and Gilbert and George. Tremlett was already making wall drawings at that time. Since the 1980s, his primary media has been pastel. Tremlett's palette has been influenced over the years by his travel.

He has exhibited internationally in private galleries and major museums.
