Anna Barriball (born 1972, Plymouth, UK)[1] is a British artist based in South London.


Barriball received her BA from Winchester School of Art in 1995 and her MA from Chelsea College of Art in 2000.[2]

Barriball works in a variety of media, including paint, pencil, ink, found photographs and video projections.[1][2] Her talent was first spotted in the New Contemporaries exhibition in 2000,[2] and she has had gallery representation since leaving college.[1] She has subsequently shown work internationally in exhibitions including The British Art Show 6 at venues throughout the UK, Rewind at Glassbox in Paris, Superfluity at Latvijas Makslas Akademija in Riga and Bonobos at Niels Borch Jensen Galerie in Berlin.

In 2008 Barriball launched a poster campaign on the escalators of the London Underground, encouraging acts of self-reflection.[3] In 2011 the Milton Keynes Gallery featured a major exhibition of Barriball's work which travelled to the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh in 2012.[2]

She is represented by Frith Street Gallery in London and Ingleby Gallery in Edinburgh. Four of her works are held in the collection of the Tate Gallery[4] and solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Gasworks, London; New Art Gallery Walsall; Galleri Bo Bjerggaard, Copenhagen; and Museum Villa Stuck, Munich, among other venues.[5]
