About the artist

Mark Richards FRBS.

Born in Northamptonshire in 1958, Mark attended Stowe School, Manchester University and The City and Guilds of London Art School. On graduation, he was assistant to architectural sculptor, Arthur J Ayres, worked as a commercial sculptor on a number of restoration, film, theatre and advertising projects and was, for three year, a senior sculptor at The Tussauds Group.

In 1994, he set up studio as a independent sculptor and now takes mainly figurative commissions from around the world. He is regarded as one of the finest exponents of figure sculpture in the UK…’I work to refine beauty and movement within strong compositions and aim for a real sense of presence ‘.

Mark Richards is, in my opinion, one of the finest figure and portrait sculptors in Great Britain.

Combining a comprehensive understanding of sculptural techniques with a rare sensitivity of touch, his work exhibits both cohesive composition and great beauty of form. Mark is a pleasure to deal with; he combines professional efficiency and responsibility with great warmth and attentiveness. His natural interest in people is so evidently reflected in his figurative work.

In conclusion, Mark Richards brings renewed vigour to the art of statuary and I would not be surprised were he to equal, if not exceed, the achievements of the finest figurative sculptors in the United Kingdom.’
