Barry Flanagan was born in 1941 in Prestalyn, Wales, and studied at the St. Martin’s School of Art in London, where he later taught as well. He is considered one of the most famous representatives of "pataphysics,” the "science" of imaginary solutions that parodies modern science. In 1982, he represented Great Britain at the Venice Biennale. Flanagan died in 2009.
