Tris Vonna-Michell (born 1982) is a British artist[1] who performs narratives and constructs installations through the layering of these narratives, photographs and mementos, presented using antiquated technologies and slide projection. Vonna-Michell lives in Southend, UK, and Stockholm, Sweden. He graduated from the Glasgow School of Art in 2005 and continued studies at the Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main.

On 7 May 2014, it was announced that he was one of the four nominees for the Turner Prize.[2]
