Bo Lanyon

Bo Lanyon works across painting, sculpture & digital.  The work explores an entangled landscape of experience & perception, as 2D, 3D & 360 perspectives merge across materials.

Beginning in painting & drawing, elements are extracted to work on digitally to bring into the world as sculpture through cutting edge printing & casting processes.

Thematically, the work navigates a range of issues, spanning inequalities, connection, communication, discord, loss, reconciliation & hope. Born in Cornwall, he holds an MA from the Royal College of Art, London and has received a number of awards from Arts Council England.
