The Artist


Adam Dant

Illustrator-at-Large

Born in 1967 in Cambridge Adam Dant studied Fine Art Printmaking at The Royal College of Art, MS University, Baroda, India, Liverpool School of Art and HDK Berlin.

He was the recipient of The Rome Scholarship in Printmaking in 1993 and in 2003 was the winner of The Jerwood Drawing Prize.

Dant’s monumental narrative ink drawings combine depictions of familiar public spaces and architecture with various mythologies and histories. Their construction involves a great deal of historical research which accounts for the ‘multi-layered’ and ‘information-heavy’ aspect to his work.

Inside Lloyds of London


Artwork Commission

In 2014 we commissioned Adam Dant to create a work of art depicting the London insurance market in all its graphic glory. Having spent an intense period of time at Lloyd’s of London observing and sketching the nuanced habitat of the London insurance broker and underwriter Dant went on to imbibe further insights through ‘sociological research’ at The Lamb, The Grapes, The New Moon and The Jamaica Wine House.

The Result

The result is “Inside Lloyds of London 2014” from which an artists signed and dated print edition of 100 was subsequently made. These are two colour lithographs printed on 300gsm 90cm x 70 cm Somerset Satin mould made paper at Sky Editions by master lithographer Alan Cox.

The print was selected for and exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts’ Summer Exhibition 2015 as well as the Lloyd’s Art Group Autumn Exhibition 2015.
