Born 1979 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, Brendan Jamison studied for six years at the University of Ulster where he gained a First Class BA Honours degree in Fine and Applied Arts in 2002 and a Master of Fine Art in 2004. Over the past eleven years, his artworks have been widely exhibited throughout the world with shows in Scotland, Wales, England, France, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Italy, America, Canada, New Zealand, India and China. In 2009, a small Jamison work was entered into the permanent collection of MoMA, New York’s Museum of Modern Art, as part of the international unbound project entitled ‘A Book About Death’. In 2010, Jamison was commissioned to create sugar cube carvings of Tate Modern and NEO Bankside for the London Festival of Architecture. His sculptures have been sold at Sotheby’s on Bond Street and since 2012, a carved sugar sculpture of Number 10 has been on display behind the real front door of 10 Downing Street. In September 2012, Jamison was elected as a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors (MRBS) and two months later elected to the Royal Ulster Academy of Arts (ARUA). In 2014, high–profile projects included ‘Sugar Metropolis’ in New York, curated by Manon Slome at the new Sugar Hill Museum of Art of Storytelling. The same year, Jamison was also commissioned to fly to Los Angeles to work for Harvest Films to create a Brita TV commercial to highlight the dangers of sugary drinks. He has received 10 awards from the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and 2 awards from the British Council. His work is housed in many private, public and corporate collections across the planet. Jamison also enjoys considerable world–wide media coverage for his sculpture practice, with over 500 reviews spanning TV, radio, newspapers and magazines.
