“Richard Deacon (Welsh, b.1949) is an abstract sculptor who was born in Bangor, Wales. He received his education at the Somerset College of Art in Taunton (1968), Central Saint Martin’s School of Art in London (1970–1973), and the Royal College of Art (1974–1977). He has an MA in environmental media.
Deacon’s work consists of small-scale items that can be shown in museums and galleries, as well as larger pieces that are more suited for occasions such as dance performances or special events. In 1993, he worked on set designs and costumes with the producers of a major dance show. The show toured in France and performed at La Ferme Du Buisson in Paris.”
