Wilfrid Wood on Instagram inspiration and satire in sculpture at Here 2016

Sculptor Wilfrid Wood is a man fascinated with capturing human expression through its quirks and idiosyncrasies. At Here 2016, Wilfrid offered a trove of humorous insights into both his career and the roots of what makes for good inspiration in his sculptures.

We see how he trawls Instagram for interesting subjects, and the brilliant way he manipulates famous faces into something rather extraordinary. From Tom Daley and Justin Bieber to politicians and boys with snails on their faces, Wilfrid manages to find beauty in the grotesque and absurd.

Here is a fast-paced annual creative symposium curated by It’s Nice That. To stay up to date with Here announcements you can sign up to our newsletter at here-london.com, follow us on Twitter or like our Facebook page.
