Martin Creed was born in Wakefield, England, in 1968, and from 1986-90 attended the Slade School of Art in London. In 1993 his Work No. 81, ‘a one inch cube of masking tape in the middle of every wall in a building’ was installed in the offices of the London firm, Starkmann Ltd, and since then Creed has had eighteen solo exhibitions or projects in Europe and North America and has participated in numerous group exhibitions world wide. He lives and works in London…

" martin creed’s work has incited widespread comparison
to conceptual art, because of his clean formalism.
he makes you aware of your own self-conciousness
in handling with abstraction.
creed is asking the eternal question: ‘what can I do’."
