George Charman is a London based British artist. The projects he develops are in most cases site-responsive, informed by specific locations, either in a historical sense or in terms of the physical/architectural parameters of space, and aim to explore how building – a physical collective endeavor – shapes our reading of and connection with place.
He graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2008 and has since exhibited nationally and internationally including: Blind Spot The Foundry Gallery, London (2015); Abstraction From Architecture Edinburgh Printmakers, Scotland (2015); Time To Hit The Road Leila Heller Gallery, New York City (2014); Tiny Lag ACME Project Space, London (2014); In These Countries Without Twilight Bemis Centre for Contemporary Art, Omaha Nebraska (2013).
George Charman is a lecturer in Fine Art at University for the Creative Arts and visiting lecture on the Visual Arts BA/MA programme at West Dean College and on the Architectural Association Visiting School Programme on Mexico. He has been the recipient of a number of awards for his practice including: Acme Fire Station Live/work residency 2010/15; Arts Council England ‘grants for the arts’ for solo projects at Acme Project Space 2012, West Dean College 2014, Leila Heller Gallery (International Development Grant) 2014, and for a forthcoming project Tools For The Future at Gerald Moore Gallery where he is currently artist in residence (2015-17) Further details about his work can be found at: www.george-charman.co.uk
