Bo Lanyon

Bo Lanyon (b. 1981, Cornwall, UK) studied at the Royal College of Art, London (2005-07) and the University of Gloucestershire (2000-2003).  

Lanyon's work explores our relationships with conflict.  The work exists across painting, sculpture, publication and public intervention in a blend of history and near future. It seeks to articulate human responses to a range of conflict, from intimate trauma to global events.    

Recent work has closely explored concepts of shelter and individual protection from armed conflict and historical unearthings of the actions and motivations of conscientious objectors.

Selected exhibitions & events include Age of Panic, White Moose Gallery, 2017; Plymouth Contemporary 2017; publication of The Post-Apocalyptic Colouring Book, 2016; Kith & Kin, Falmouth Art Gallery & Museum, 2016; Broomhill National Sculpture Prize, 2015;  Resilience, Goldman Sachs, 2015; Hidden, Royal College of Art, 2010; 4 New Sensations, Saatchi Gallery & Channel 4, 2007; Jerwood Drawing Prize, 2005.  

Forthcoming projects include a public commission for the First World War & its Legacy: Commemoration, Conflict & Conscience festival across Bristol in 2019.
