About Michael Craig-MartinView Profile »
Michael Craig-Martin (English, b. 1941) is an English contemporary conceptual artist commonly associated with the Young British Artists, many of whom he fostered as a professor at Goldsmiths. Craig-Martin studied art at the Academie de la Grande Chaumiere in Paris before attending Yale University, where he found himself greatly influenced by the multidisciplinary experimentation and minimalist theories of Josef Albers. His most seminal work, “An Oak Tree,” created in 1973 deployed semiotic argument to convince that a glass of water was, in fact, an oak tree. In the 1980s, Craig-Martin worked as a tutor at Goldsmiths College, where he is now Emeritus Professor of Fine Art.Interested in consigning works by Michael Craig-Martin? Learn more »
