Richard Wilson was born in London in 1953 and attended Hornsey College of Art, London, and Reading University, from where he graduated in 1975.He is an artist who makes installations which confront the architecture of the viewing space with materials and projections and the use of sound. He is perhaps most notably known for hisinstallation 20:50 at the Saatchi Gallery, London, where troughs of sump oil reflect the surroundings as well as transforming the very material, making liquid solid glass.Wilson lives and works in London.
Cultural Ties PortraitCultural Ties – a celebration of cultural diversity, was a global project and the brain child of London art dealer Kapil Jariwala. The brief was for 77 artists from around the world to design neck ties. A limited edition of 300 of each tie were produced for sale worldwide via selected retail outlets, gallery shops and the internet.

It was hoped that the project would raise $1 million for UNICEF, in particular for their clean water programme. The Italian firm Ratti, a major producer of fine textiles for the fashion world, was chosen and the artists’ designs were transformed into shimmering, sensual velvets, taffeta and densely woven jacquard.
