About Oscar Murillo

Oscar Murillo was born in 1986 in Colombia and moved to London with his family when he was ten years old. His practice incorporates a variety of techniques and media including painting, performance, drawing, collaborative works, sculpture and sound, often using recycled materials and fragments collected from his studio. Many of his works undergo multiple processes in the studio before being exhibited. Murillo’s work reflects his own experience of displacement, and the social fallout of globalisation.


The galleries, Clore Learning Studio and Research Space are all fully accessible.The whole of the café, which is a conversion of some of the original parts of Kettle’s Yard, not part of the new development, is not fully accessible to wheelchair users.
