Wilfrid Wood

London based artist Wilfrid Wood is known for his figurative sculptures: portraits of fictional personalities, famous people, friends, or strangers that he likes the look of  – always getting as much character as possible out of the lump of clay he’s using. After studying graphic design at Central St. Martins he had several jobs in publishing before moving on to the legendary satirical TV programme ‘Spitting Image’ as a headbuilder. As well as working on a commission basis, he also exhibits his work regularly. Wilfrid finds inspiration in wonky faces, symmetrical faces, beautiful bodies, fat bodies, hairy bodies, animals, fashion, toys, cartoons, contortionists, freaks, animals, transvestites, sport, bears and people under pressure.
