Scott King trained as a graphic designer, and has worked as an art director for I-D magazine, and as creative director of Sleazenation. His artwork is infused with an interest in how an iconic image can become detached from its original meaning, and reduced to a unit of symbolic information. Specifically, King’s large-scale digital prints and sculptures refer to political ideologies that have been undermined through this fluidity and systemization of iconography.
King has exhibited internationally, including Institute of Contemporary Art, London, Kunstverein Munich, Herald Street, London and Bortolami, New York. Recent group exhibitions include Barbican Art Gallery, London Saatchi Gallery and The Modern Institute, Glasgow, UK.
