Rakerman trained at Ravensbourne School of Art and later opened his first London studio in 1991. He continues to exhibit in London, with work held in the V&A museum's permanent collection and has won awards including the BBC Design Awards.
Rakerman’s work can easily be interpreted as one or several different identifiable objects, yet at the same time the artist depicts something the viewer does not recognise at all. Some of these works, entitled the ‘Visible Projects’, attempt to make visible those things one does not normally see, or that can be taken for granted. Drawings are frequently made directly from ubiquitous surfaces such as walls, stairs, tables, paths and floors.
