About

Tom Coates uses sculpture, live art and installation to create work. Gathering materials with a mischievous attitude (many of them from the bin), coating them in bright colours and moulding strange forms before unleashing them on the world. Tom works in the hope of creating an unorthodox interaction between art and audience. Often using imagery from television, film, theatre and the domestic to augment their creations, they also often engage with and explores various forms of camp, to celebrate it and explore its potential to enrich the experience of the audience.
