Artist Biography

Wilfrid Wood

Driven by the notion that the human form connects most directly with our emotions, Wilfrid Wood creates characters that are all at once, sharp, funny and disturbing. Wilfrid’s fascination with people and the belief that “nature is much more interesting than your imagination”, means he spends a lot of time studying characters he sees in the supermarket, on the bus and in celebrity magazines.

Made entirely by hand, Wilfrid’s sculptures are initially sketched before testing their validity in plasticine. They are finally formed from plastic clay, airbrushed and varnished to an immaculate level of finish. After dumping a career in graphics, Wilfrid plunged into 3D model making at cult classic British television show, Spitting Image.

Today he lives and works in London, exhibiting his creations worldwide and taking select commercial commissions.
