David Thorp/Jeffrey Bligh is an artist and curator. Jeffrey Bligh was born in London soon after the end of World War ll. Jeffrey was adopted shortly after birth. From then on he was known as David Thorp.

David Thorp studied briefly at Camberwell College of Arts and completed a master's degree at Flinders University in South Australia. His first major curatorial assignment was for the 1986 Adelaide Festival in Australia, and he subsequently had a career as a curator working internationally. 

Bligh and Thorp share some similarities though not in a fictitious way. According to circumstance, Thorp sometimes returns to his birth name. Everything Jeffrey does David does too.
