Wilfrid Wood for YCN

29 January, 2016

It’s Wilfrid Wood!

For YCN’s Winter 2016 issue, Nick met with sculptor Wilfrid Wood in his studio in East London. The former graphic designer and head-building apprentice for the TV show Spitting Image, is now focussing on working with aluminium wire and plasticine maquettes to artistically sculpt characters for clients such as Nike, Puma, Orange and Howies. His personal and commercial practice seem to be balanced perfectly, with his own work catching the attention of potential new clients and his commercial work challenging him with new perspectives and working outside of his comfort zone.
