American-born Nancy Fouts has lived London most of her life pursuing a career in advertising. Despite her commercial success, Fouts has retained a fine art approach to image-making having originally graduated from Chelsea School of Art and the RCA in the 60s. Her work is provocative, playful, witty, sharp and tempestuous. Described by Les Coleman as an 'Art Prankster', Fouts playfully distills and disrupts the roles and associations of objects, icons and relationships. She had her first solo-show in London in early 2010.
