    Martin Creed was born in Wakefield, Yorkshire, and studied at the Slade School of Art from 1986 to 1990. He has had solo exhibitions at Tate Britain and Southampton City Art Gallery. His work was included in the shows Intelligence, at Tate Britain (2000), and The British Art Show 5, which toured Manchester, Southampton, Cardiff and Birmingham (2000-01). He won the 2001 Turner Prize. Creed’s work is conceptual and crosses a range of media.

In 2011 his solo exhibition featuring a giant neon sign reading ‘Mothers’ opened at Hauser & Wirth in London. He lives and works in London and Italy.
