Biography

Adam Dant (born 1967) is a Jerwood Drawing Prize-winning British artist (2002).

He has won praise from The Guardian and Financial Times for his Hogarthian graphic style. Among the artists that have inspired him, Dant lists Albrecht Dürer, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, JMW Turner, George Cruikshank, Edward Burra and Saul Steinberg. Critics have most often liken Dant to William Hogarth, whose 18th-century satirical prints were created with a moral purpose in mind. "Mine are underpinned by subversion," Dant says, "dressed up in traditional clothes."
