Ant Pearce is an emerging British artist. He comes from a background in biochemistry and IT. He worked in the City of London as a senior business consultant for more than ten years before embarking on a life within the visual arts. After completing an intensive course at Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design, he enrolled in 2010 on the MA Visual Arts course at Camberwell College of Arts, graduating with Merit in late 2012. He has shown work in London and the UK, Europe and the US. His practice is based in London.

His practice focuses on the concept that man is condemned to exist imprisoned. Through his work he explores the fragility of life, drawing on human psychology. Influenced by Freud’s theories and the writings and philosophies of Dostoyevsky, Kafka and Camus, his work alludes to the idea that the omnipresent external authority is what brings about man’s aberrant destructive behaviours.
