Nick Hornby is a British artist living and working in London. He is most known for his large white sculptures which have been exhibited in Tate Britain, Southbank Centre, Fitzwilliam Museum, and internationally in New York, Greece and India. You can see work permanently sited in the main reception of Andaz 5th Avenue, New York, and Sony BMG HQ in London.


Nick's work straddles hi-tech and traditional carving techniques. He makes multi-faceted works by hybridising references and carving out their overlapping shapes. He has just completed a research post at Eyebeam centre for Art and Technology in New York to stretch his investigations into the realm of Architecture. If previously he had been mixing Rodin, Brancusi, and Moore, imagine now carving out the White House with the cross-section of the Guggenheim, the floor plan of Downing Street, Falling Water, the Villa Savoye, or McDonalds Golden Arches; nothing sacred or out of bounds. Look forward to seeing these architectonic sculptures in the Polish Biennale 2012, and later at One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London in 2013.
