David Wilkinson (b.1946)

Sculptor, teacher and therapist specialising in site-specific and ephemeral works, frequently incorporating an element of community engagement. Born in the docklands of Hull, he studied 3-D and interior design at Hull College of Art, gaining a Distinction in 1966, later working variously as a set and special effects designer for TV and film studios, and an interior and display designer for a museum in London. He was a founder member of Artlink, and since 1990 has practiced ‘integrative therapy’, using creative practices in individual and group contexts to promote mental health and well-being.
