Dominic Watson was born in Sunderland, UK 1986. He studied sculpture at Camberwell College of Art, London, and then an MFA at the Glasgow School of Art in 2014.

Watson makes figurative sculpture that is absurd and grotesque. He works with a combination of paper mache and handmade clay. Through these materials he explores the visceral qualities of the human body. Watson's work is often satirical, employing humour as a tool to explore the feeling of existing in contemporary Britain. Since graduating Watson has been selected for New Contemporaries 2013, as well as the London Open 2015. Watson was a recipient of the John Kinross Fellowship, 2014, awarded by the Royal Scottish Academy and received a Fellowship in Contemporary Art Practice from the British School of Rome in 2017. His work is part of the RSA and the Ingram Collections. Watson currently lives and works in London, where co runs an artist led project space, PLAZA PLAZA in Elephant and Castle.
