Born in New Zealand in 1947, Boyd Webb studied at the Royal College of Art from 1972-1975 and had his first solo show one year later at the Robert Self Gallery, London. A sculptor and photographer, Webb is best known for his large scale cibachromes in which human and their environments are involved in bizarre and absurd events. Major survey exhibitions include Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, 1978 and 1987; Hirschhorn Museum, Washington DC, 1990; and the Auckland Art Gallery touring exhibition, 1997. Webb was also included in Toi Toi Toi Museum Fridericianum Kassel, and Auckland Art Gallery, 1999. He represented New Zealand in the Sydney Biennale in 1995. He now lives and works in Brighton.
