Ian Davenport

Ian Davenport (B.1966) studied at Goldsmiths’ College of Art in London and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 1991. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is included in many public collections such as The Tate, London; Centre Pompidou, Paris; and The Dallas Museum of Art, Texas.

Ian Davenport is very pleased to support the Tusk Lion Trail. He has taken inspiration from his ‘Splat’ series to create a colourful, dynamic painted surface across the majestic lion.


This Lion is part of The London Pride sculpture trail.
