United Visual Artists


Established in 2003, United Visual Artists are an art & design practice based in London. UVA produce immersive and responsive work at the intersection of sculpture, architecture, live performance, moving image and digital installation. Reflecting their roots in live show creation, UVA’s work aims to create a social and emotional experience, inviting the audience to cross the line and become a part of the work. With an emphasis on research and development, they have collaborated with artists and clients such as Massive Attack, U2, Prada, and Virgin Media.

They have also received numerous commissions to produce work for the likes of Artwise Curators, The Creators Project, La Gaîté Lyrique, National Maritime Museum, Opera North, Royal Academy of Arts, Victoria & Albert Museum, YCAM Japan, Tate Modern, Serpentine Gallery and Madison Square Garden in New York.


UVA’s work has been exhibited at institutions and galleries including the South Bank Centre, the Wellcome Collection Durham and the British Library. Internationally they have shown in Barcelona, Beijing, Hong Kong, Melbourne, New York, Paris, São Paulo, St Petersburg, Taipei and Tokyo.

In 2007, UVA’s responsive light and sound sculpture Volume won a yellow pencil at the D&AD awards, and featured in the London Design Museum’s ‘Design of the Year’ show in 2008. In 2010 UVA were awarded a distinction for their kinetic installation Chorus at the Prix Arts Electronica. And in 2011, Speed of Light was awarded as ‘Best in Book’ in the Creative Review Annual.
