Duggie Fields is a British artist, born in Tidworth in 1945 who lives and works in London.
In 1964 Duggie Fields started his studies at the Chelsea School of Art, before leaving with a scholarship that took him on his first visit to the United States, in 1968.
The early works of Fields' rapidly metamorphized from minimal, conceptual and constructivist phases into his signature style of dynamic post-Pop figuration. His main influences were at that time Jackson Pollock, Mondrian and comic books, with a special regard to those worked on by the legendary Marvel artist Stan Lee. Around 1968 Fields went to live in Earls Court Square sharing a flat with Syd Barrett, who had recently left Pink Floyd. Fields still lives in the same flat and he works in Barrett's former room using it as his atelier.
His bedroom interior was staged by The Modern Institute in one of the standout shows during Frieze 2018. He has exhibited internationally in group and solo exhibitions.
