Oliver Griffin

Oliver Griffin (born 1983) is a British visual artist currently living and working in London and Berlin. Griffin creates typologies of objects and situations that explore the mundane, the boring, and the everyday; these primarily take the form of photographic prints, sculptures and artist's books. His subjects include house-keys, domestic ceilings, light switches, fence panels, his glasses, parked cars, and skid marks left on gymnasium floors by BMX bikes. His work is characterised by a wry detachment.
