Daniel Crews-Chubb was born in Northampton, England in 1984. He studied at Turps Art School, London and Chelsea College of Arts, London. Crews-Chubb is quickly garnering international recognition for his innovative, experimental collage paintings, which mine the legacies of Art Brut, Arte Povera, and Abstract Expressionism, and interrogate symbols and archetypes of art history. As David Pagel of the Los Angeles Times writes, 'If Crews-Chubb’s paintings were billboards, they’d stop traffic. But there’s more going on than immediately meets the eye. To look closely is to see how deliberately, even carefully, each is made … You don’t need to know what they reference in order to come face to face with their beauty, which is down and dirty and so far from pretty that you might start to think that beauty without a touch of grunge or even ugliness is not all it’s cracked up to be.'Read More
Crews-Chubb’s first institutional installation will open in April 2020 at the Wellington Arch in collaboration with English Heritage. The artist has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Roberts Project, Los Angeles (2018); Vigo Gallery, London (2016); and Galerist, Istanbul (2014). Recent group exhibitions include Telescope, curated by Nigel Cooke, Hastings Contemporary, Hastings (2019); Tree, Vigo Gallery, London (2018); and ICONOCLASTS: Art out of the Mainstream, Saatchi Gallery, London (2017). His works are represented in international public and private collections including the Denver Art Museum, Colorado; The Long Museum, Shanghai; Saatchi Gallery, London; The Bunker Artspace and Beth Rudin de Woody Collections, Palm Beach and New York; and the Hall Art Foundation, New York. He lives and works in London.
