Wilfrid Wood




Wilfrid Wood is a satirical sculptor.


After dumping a career in graphics, Wilfrid plunged into model making and sculpture at cult classic British television show, Spitting Image. Here he learnt his trade as an ‘apprentice headbuilder’. Now he makes heads and figures entirely by hand. They are of famous people, invented characters and friends.


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.


Wilfrid lives and works in Hackney, East London.
