Richard Woods

Inspired by his parent’s 1970s British house, Richard Woods transforms real surfaces into cartoon-like versions. His art is a mash-up of art, architecture and design—using household gloss paint, plywood and laminate to playfully transform urban buildings into mock-Tudor cottages, coating concrete pillars with chintz wallpaper, and covering floors with crazy paving in wild colors.


Woods has recently presented work at the Victoria & Albert Musuem, London, Royal Academy of Art, London, Bloomberg Space, London, Turner Contemporary, Margate, Grieder Contemporary, Zurich, and Milton Keynes Gallery. In 2003, he participated in the 50th International Venice Biennale. Over the years, he has undertaken a number of major projects that have included an interior for iconic designers Comme des Garçons flagship store in Osaka, Japan, and the transformation of Cary Grant’s former Hollywood residence for its new owner, art dealer Jeffrey Deitch.
