Hamish Fulton

Born 1946, London.

From 1964-65 Hamish Fulton studied at Hammersmith College of Art and then at St Martin's School of Art, also in London, from 1965-68 before going to the Royal College of Art from 1968-69.

Like his contemporaries at St Martin's: Richard Long, Barry Flanagan and Gilbert and George, he was encouraged to incorporate time into his work. From 1969 he began making "art resulting from the experience of individual walks". The walks involve different structures such as "a continuous 106 mile walk without sleep" of 1993.

His work is included in the collections of the Tate Gallery in London, the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris, the Metropolitan Museum in Tokyo and the Brooklyn Museum in New York. In 2002 he had solo exhibitions at the Sainsbury Centre at the University of East Anglia in Norwich and at Tate Britain in London.
