One of Turner prize-winning Martin Creed’s celebrated neon works, the letters celebrate and question a clichéd phrase.

I want to make things. I’m not sure why, but I think it’s got something to do with other people. I think I want to try to communicate with other people, because I want to say “hullo”, because I want to express myself, and because I want to be loved.

Martin Creed was born in 1968 in Wakefield, England. From the age of three he lived in Glasgow, Scotland. Between 1986 and 1990 he studied at the Slade School of Fine Art, London. After art school he lived and worked in London until 2001, when he moved to Alicudi, Italy. In 2001 he was the winner of the Turner Prize.

He currently lives and works in London and Alicudi.
