The work of Glaswegian conceptual artist Martin Creed is characterised by a gentle but subversive wit and by a minimalism rooted in an instinctive anti-materialism. His often extremely self-effacing works, all titled by number, have been characterised as ‘attempts to short-circuit the visually overloaded, choice saturated culture in which we live’. Creed’s official website provides a comprehensive overview of his gallery-based practice, as well as his work with music, performance and film. You can also purchase Creed’s unlimited edition work ‘Work No. 88: A sheet of A4 paper crumpled into a ball’ 2008 for £150.00. Enter through the wardrobe: www.martincreed.com
