Colin Priest is a London-based artist, architect and educator as Course Leader for BA Interiors and Spatial Design at Chelsea College of Arts. 

Having graduated from the Architectural Association, London, in 2003, he operates within the fields of art, architecture and spatial production, where multi-media works combine physical intervention, writing, film, curation and performance with an ambition to construct contemporary site-specific, interactive environmental experiences. Through the appropriation of tangible and familiar artefacts, spaces and media, his works manifest memorable, inclusive and legible encounters to contemplate time and space.
