Brendan Dawes b. 1966



Brendan Dawes is a UK based artist using generative processes involving data, machine learning and code to create interactive installations, electronic objects, online experiences, data visualisations, motion  graphics and physical sculptures. 


A Lumen Prize and Aesthetica Art prize Alumni, his work has been featured in many exhibitions  worldwide, including Big Bang Data in thirteen cities, three MoMA shows in New York, and his Cinema  Redux work became part of the MoMA permanent collection in 2008. 

Dawes draws much of his inspiration from popular culture and nature, often revolving his work around  the concept of time and memory. These analytical explorations into our relationship with time and space  have been an ongoing theme in Dawes’s work as he questions our understanding of the surrounding  world. 


Following his Genesis NFT on KnownOrigin selling within the hour to legendary collector WhaleShark,  Dawes released a collection on Nifty Gateway – selling out in under sixty seconds. He has also released  work on MakersPlace, Foundation and SuperRare. He was part of ‘NTFism: No Fear in Trying’ curated  by Kenny Schachter. His work has been auctioned at Sotheby’s Natively Digital: A Curated NFT Sale  and “Generative Art and The Future”, an Art exhibition in Shenzhen hosted by China’s largest auction  house, Beijing Poly.
