Richard Wright (English / Scottish, born 1960)
Richard Wright was born in London. He studied painting at Edinburgh College of Art from 1978 to 1982 and also at Glasgow School of Art from 1993 to 1995. Wright is best-known for his site-specific paintings, carried out on walls or ceilings. One of his main concerns is that his works are not a commercial commodity that can be moved around and traded beyond his control. In his work Wright uses images from a wide range of sources in popular culture, such as nightclub flyers, tattoos and typography, stressing their links to everyday experience. Wright lives in Glasgow.
