Daniel Lismore


Here's a snippet from Daniel's website which is here.


"Daniel Lismore’s first book, ‘Be Yourself, Everyone Else Is Already Taken,’ published by Rizzoli in 2016, documented the 32 figurative sculptures of Lismore which comprised his first USA museum exhibition. The exhibition was co-curated by Raphael Gomes and  Savannah College of Art and Design and was later displayed at Miami Art Basel. In May 2017 Lismore exhibited at the Venice Biennale. In June 2018, Lismore curated a month-long show of his work at Harpa Hall in Iceland as the highlight of the Reykjavik Arts Festival. The exhibition subsequently toured Europe, opening at the Pan Museum in Naples and Stary Brower Gallery in PoznaƄ, Poland. The exhibition has been attended by over 150,000+ visitors.

Lismore has long been an active campaigner for the recycling of clothes and in 2015 became the face of the H&M Close the Loop campaign to encourage the practice of recycling clothes. Daniel Lismore is an ambassador of the climate change charity Cool Earth & Greenpeace and has worked closely with Dame Vivienne Westwood on her Climate Revolution projects. Since 2018 Lismore has been a Global Ambassador for Graduate Fashion Week, which reflects the 6 years he spent as creative director of luxury women’s wear brand Sorapol, dressing Mariah Carey, Cara Delevingne and Nicky Minaj. He has appeared in numerous Bulgari Campaigns and featured in TV shows, including Sky Arts Portrait of The Year, Marina Abramovic Takes Over TV, and Statues Redressed. In 2015 he made a cameo appearance in the movie Absolutely Fabulous. In April 2019 Lismore gave a TED Talk at the main TED conference in Vancouver, titled "My Life as A Work of Art" in which he spoke about his life as a Living Sculpture."
