Early life and education[edit]

Anderson was born in Birmingham in the UK to parents of Jamaican origin.[1] He was educated at Wimbledon College of Art, London and The Royal College of Art.

His work has been exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in the UK and the US, including at Tate Britain, London, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, and the Studio Museum, Harlem, New York.[2] Colin Perry in Frieze Magazine described the artist's work as "a vision of an awkwardly accommodated immigrant culture".
