Ingleby Gallery > Artists > Kenny Hunter

Kenny Hunter (b. Edinburgh, 1962) lives and works in Glasgow. Hunter is best-known for his sculptural works but over the past few years the artist has created a number of text-based images inspired by writers such as Baudelaire, Marx and Goethe.

Common to Hunter’s approach in both his two- and three-dimensional works is a dual interest in tradition and modernity. His works are a response to the contemporary world, exploring cultural changes within our modern urban environment and their relationships to social and artistic legacies of the past.

Kenny Hunter has exhibited extensively abroad and in the U.K. including solo exhibitions at Scottish National Portrait Gallery (Edinburgh, 2000), Centre for Contemporary Arts (Glasgow, 2003), Yorkshire Sculpture Park (2006) and Tramway (Glasgow, 2008).

Hunter has also created a number of high profile public art commissions including Youth with split apple (2005) for Kings College, Aberdeen and Citizen Firefighter (2001) outside Glasgow’s Central Station. Forthcoming commissions include a 7ft high bronze sculpture of a mouse for the Robert Burns’ Birthplace Museum (a nod to one of the poet’s most famous works To A Mouse) and I Goat which was announced as the winner of the inaugural Spitalfields Sculpture Prize earlier this year.
