Lawrence Weiner Biography

Born in 1942 and growing up in the South Bronx, New York, Weiner had limited exposure to Fine Art and instead drew inspiration from his surroundings. A founding figure of Conceptual Art in its emergence in the late 1960s, Lawrence Weiner is regarded as one of the most pivotal artists working today with a career of over fifty years. Using language as his medium, Weiner considers himself a sculptor and his artworks, realised as ‘language + the material referred to’ are ideas that can be transformed into a multitude of forms.
