Artist Profiles

Richard Wright

Born 1960 London, England

Through his unique intricate painting methods, Wright injects complex works into often overlooked architectural spaces.

Working predominantly with paint and gold leaf directly on walls, his paintings are often short-lived, only surviving the length of an exhibition, they are painted over at the end of the show. This often seems to heighten the senses of the viewer in the knowledge that the work may not be viewable again, in any other place, at any other time. 

Wright's oeuvre includes a wide range of works made on paper, from prints on poster paper to elaborate and complex large-scale works that can include thousands of hand drawn and painted marks.
