Richard Martin is a sculptor and model maker from East London. Over his career he has sculpted puppets for animation and made props for theatre, TV and advertising.
Having got his start with a summer of work experience at Spitting Image studios in the late nineties he has always had an interest in sculpted caricature. Drawing on figures from popular culture Richard produces pieces that can be plain studies or sometimes reflections of how the subjects are perceived by the public. Using the nature of caricature, this allows the sculptures to be enjoyed as entertainment, as all pop culture should be.
