David Rhys Jones trained at Central Saint Martins and has exhibited widely, including the V&A Museum, the Royal Academy of Arts and the Courtauld Institute. Winner of the Jerwood Visual Arts Prize 2010.
'David Rhys Jones' artworks are a form of social documentary that record the mix of cultures and architecture found in the modern day metropolis. His work is based on journeys or site-specific locations, and recorded using photographs and drawings; these are used to make sculptural, narrative work that reflects the experience of the journey. David is now starting to apply his concept and techniques to a range of materials and to a larger scale. He has recently been commissioned to produce a sculpture for Spitalfields. His work can also be seen in Culture Bound East Wing Collection VII at the Courtauld Institute of Art, Somerset House, London'
