Finlay Sandiford began their professional artistic journey when attending The Manchester School of Art in 2018. Since then, they have participated in a number of collaborative projects and is working on finishing their final year at university.

Unlike many of their contemporaries, Finlay Sandiford is primarily self-taught and has their own approach to - and definition of - art. They believe in constantly taking risks and believe that inspiration can be found wherever they look. He is also a trans man and focuses a lot of his projects on his identity and transition.
