*1972, Hexham, UK. Lives and works in London, UK

Guy Allott is a painter, sculptor, printmaker and ceramicist who draws from science fiction and landscape painting to create works that are fantastic and playful. At the same time he remains somewhat apart from these genres themselves, satirising and twisting their tropes.

Allott recently showed in Milchstraßenverkehrsordnung (Space is the Place) at Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions, including Reception (Berlin, DE), MAC VAL (Vitry-sur-Seine, FR), Zabludowicz Collection (London, UK), and Chung King Project (Los Angeles, US).
His works are included in collections at the V&A Museum and the British Library in London, in the Zabludowicz Collection, the UBS Art Collection, the Fidelity Art Collection, and many other public, corporate and private collections.

Allott’s upcoming solo show at MOUNTAINS (Apr 30-Jun 6) is called „I Am A Building“ and is inspired from Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel „Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus“.
