Richard Woods


Richard Woods is an artist whose work sits within the boundaries between art, design and architecture, renowned for his colourful, architectural installations, which transform existing spaces.

Graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art in 1990, Woods’ architectural interventions prioritise the re-surfacing of existing structures and comment on the increasing popularity of DIY and home improvement. Woods’ notable recent architectural projects include a large-scale commission for the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics, and his Holiday Home project commissioned for the 2017 Folkestone Triennial.

Woods has exhibited internationally, with recent solo exhibitions being held at the David Risley Gallery in Copenhagen, South Bank Centre in London and Friedman Benda Project Space in New York. His works are held in a number of major public collections, including the Saatchi Collection, Arts Council Collection and the British Museum.

Richard Woods lives and works in London, England.
