All Artists & Writers

David Burrows (born 1965) is a British artist and writer. His work consists of drawings and paint-spattered, debris-littered, haphazard installations. Between 1993 and 1995 he was a member of the art collective BANK with Simon Bedwell, John Russell, Milly Thompson and Andrew Williamson. In 2001 he was shortlisted for the Beck’s Futures art prize. He collaborates with Simon O’Sullivan to create the fictional group Plastique Fantastique, who employ ritualised performance to manifest human and inhuman avatars who deliver communiqués from the past and the future. He writes articles on art and aesthetics and is the editor of Article Press at Birmingham City University. He is a lecturer in Fine Art at Slade School of Fine Art, where his research interests include the depictions of events and aftermaths, utopian narratives and indexical art practices.
