Anthea Hamilton (born 1978) is a British artist who graduated from the Royal College of Art  and one of four shortlisted for the 2016 Turner Prize and was responsible for the show's most popular exhibit, Project For Door. She is known for creating strange and surreal artworks and large-scale installations.
In 2017 she became the first black woman to be awarded a commission to create a work for Tate Britain's Duveen Galleries, and according to Alex Farquharson, Tate Britain's director, Hamilton has made a "unique contribution to British and international art with her visually playful and thoughtful works". Her sculptures feature collage-like images which reuse images from her previous works.
Hamilton was born in London, and expressed no interest in becoming an artist as a child. She told her mother at an early age that she wanted to be an accountant, because of her love for math.
