Andy Klunder



British artist Andy Klunder made his Royal Ballet debut in 1980, creating designs for Kenneth MacMillan’s Gloria. He has since returned to create designs for William Tuckett’s Present Histories and If this is still a problem for The Royal Ballet.

Klunder studied painting at Winchester School of Art and sculpture at the Slade School. It was at the Slade’s graduate summer show that MacMillan encountered Klunder’s work and commissioned him to create the designs for Gloria. Klunder is currently programme leader of Plymouth University’s Fine Art BA. His artwork reflects a variety of interests, including Eastern philosophy and changing and temporary states, and has appeared at galleries including the Slusser Gallery, Michigan. Much of his recent work has used photography and video to focus on the ephemeral conditions of weather and light on landscapes.

Klunder’s other work in dance includes designs for Jonathan Burrows’s Cloister and A Tremulous Heart. His awards include a Fulbright Scholarship.
