Mike Ballard

Mike Ballard (b. London, 1972) is an artist based in London. Signage is a recurring theme within his work, in his paintings and sculptures, Ballard aims to bring our attention to the visual noise that influences a fundamental experience of the everyday urban environment.

His works riff on the territorial gestures that form the boundaries between public and private property. Ballard’s approach to the metropolis as a ‘ready-made’, allows for a transformation of the quotidian.
