Wilfrid Wood is a satirical sculptor. He started out as headbuilder on the TV program Spitting Image and now make heads and figures entirely by hand. They are of famous people, invented characters and friends. He uses polymer clay, papier mâché and heaps of warm plasticine. Instagram is a source of commissioned portraits, he does his own work for galleries an draws people both naked and clothed just about every day. His inspiration comes from faces, fashion, the news, gay stuff, people on the bus, celebrities and funny looking animals. Wilfrid lives and works in Hackney, East London.

Music is a mood modifier for me in the studio, a kind of drug. There are uppers and downers. I listen to The Pixies when I want waking up, Connan Mockasin when I’d like a soft landing and Oumou Sangare when I need to cry.
