Derek Ogbourne, born in High Wycombe (1964), and studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London (1983-1989), exhibited extensively in the UK and abroad. Exhibitions include What Make You, What Makes You at the South London Gallery, Space International, Valencia, Spain and the Museum of Optography at Sharjah Foundation, UAE.

Derek Ogbourne is best known for his exhilaratingly, sometimes violently physical works across all art forms, where an ongoing plot of big themes: physical life, death, violence, beauty and the sublime; landscape and vision. Pulsing with the strengths and frailties of what it is like to be human, his obsessive preoccupations result in deeply complex, emotionally engaging artworks.
