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.
