Degrees:
1970 Gloucestershire College of Art, Cheltenham

Lives and Works in Wuppertal, Germany.

The sculptor Tony Cragg has emerged in late 1970 with a bold practice that questioned and tested the limits of a range of traditional sculptural materials such as bronze, steel, glass, wood and stone. Avoiding the manufacture of his works, Cragg has been known to combine contemporary industrial materials with the suggestion of the functional forms of trivial and antiques reaching sublime forms, sinuous, and torsion.
