Richard Clegg is one of our ‘secret artists’ and his work is probably best known amongst the artist fraternity of London. He is a sculptor of the builder and craftsman lineage, an artist who performs and has his artwork performing for his audience, never afraid of fire and brimstone, smoke and mirrors. He uses materials that appear from nowhere, reinvents them into improvised constructions that never fail to entertain, surprise or sometimes even shock.
