Toby Paterson (Scottish, born 1974)
Born and still based in Glasgow, Toby Paterson studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1991-5. In 2002 he won the Beck’s Futures Prize and in 2007 was commissioned by BBC Scotland to install an artwork outside their new headquarters at Pacific Quay, Glasgow. Mainly concerned with cities and modernist architecture, Paterson is influenced by both his physical experience of a place (often on skateboarding journeys) and his interest in its history, asking ‘what cultural, political and economic situation had made that place exist?’ His work comprises of wall drawings, paintings and sculptural installations, which encourage the viewer to consider their perception of the built environment, architecture and the city.
