Sanford Biggers (nato nel 1970) è cresciuto a Los Angeles e attualmente vive e lavora a New York City. È stato insignito del Rome Prize 2017 nel settore delle Arti Visive ad opera della American Academy in Rome. 

Affascinato dai tessuti fin da giovane, Biggers ha incorporato il tessuto nel suo lavoro per la prima volta nel 2009.

Biggers modifica antichi quilts, disegnando e dipingendo su di essi; usa vari tipi di materiali come glitter, frammenti di tessuto e vernice spray e crea complessi riferimenti storici e culturali attraverso i suoi motivi pittorici.
