Clive Barker (3)

Profile:
Clive Barker is a pop artist who was born in Luton, Bedfordshire in 1940. He made sculpture from everyday objects which he bought and had covered in chrome. His early work included sculptural representations of Coca Cola contour bottles, hand grenades and a Mars bar.

Clive's more recent work is predominantly in aluminium and bronze and has featured, amongst other items, a storm trooper mask, Dennis the Menace and Homer Simpson, as well as a bronze depicting his own head underneath a large bunch of bananas. He is a contemporary of Peter Blake (4) and contributed the back sleeve cover for The Who's Face Dances album, which Peter Blake commissioned, along with one of four front sleeve pictures of Pete Townshend.

His works are in collections across the world including the National Portrait Gallery, the Tate collection and Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museum.
