Duke Riley was born in Boston, Massachusetts and received his BFA from Rhode Island School of Design 1995 and an MFA from Pratt Institute in 2006. His first solo show, The Bright Passage, in March 2006, at Magnan Projects was a great success. He was awarded the "Impulse Prize" as best artist in the Pulse art fair which exhibited a scaled-down version of the show. Additional exhibitions include a solo show of drawings and sculptures at Sarah Lawrence College, two group shows at the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council: Book and A Knock at the Door. The artist has had numerous performance and site-specific events including Dead Horse Inn which was featured in The New York Times (June 2006), Circumnavigate, in which he circumnavigated the island of Manhattan in a handmade boat, Building, in Belfast, Northern Ireland, where the artist recreated blackouts in Ireland during the 1980's and Nautical Waste, an annual celebration of his newly created holiday. Duke Riley is represented by Magnan Projects in Chelsea. He currently lives in Brooklyn where he owns and operates Cherry Bomb Tattoo.
