Mixed media sculpture
Daniel Lismore is a London and Coventry based artist; A Living Sculpture who creates elaborate, extravagant, three-dimensional tableaux of figurative sculptures crafted like tapestries; Each artwork is created from fragments of items previously worn by the artist, meshing history and futurism whilst reflecting the world in which he exists.
Lismore has been a prominent fixture on the London Fashion and Art circuits and an activist for Human Rights and the environment for 20 years. His evolution as a living sculpture was fuelled by a childhood growing up in his father’s antique auction house where historic regalia; priceless exquisitely, hand-made treasures, artworks, taxidermy, weaponry and suits-of-armour were assembled alongside collectible Star War figures and Star Trek memorabilia.
Although he started his career as an artist from the perspective of the outsider, working as a photographer within a year he had moved in front of the lens as a model, later emerging as a creative consultant for Mert & Marcus, Steven Klein, Martin Parr, David LaChapelle and Ellen von Unwerth.
Lismore has been named by Vogue as ‘England’s Most Eccentric Dresser’. In 2017 he was selected in the top hundred of the Out 100 List. In 2018 and 2020 he was named in the top hundred, Guardian’s Pride Power List.
In 2016, Daniel Lismore became the Circuit Ambassador for the Tate Museums. It was here that Lismore hosted his first two exhibitions in Tate Modern 2012 and Tate Britain 2013 featuring self portraits.
