Richard Wheater

Creative Networks presents

Light, magic and love


Richard Wheater

Did you know? During the 1940’s Leeds was the only place in the north of England making neon signs. The city shops must have been aglow. Trained at Edinburgh School of Art and Sunderland, Richard is currently collaborating with artist, Victoria Lucas to challenge the common expectations of the materials in an ambitious project entitled ’12 Months of Neon Love’ Richard is fearless, passionate and energetic about his work and takes his medium into installation, film and the landscape. ‘Filling glass with inert gas and exciting it with electricity, creating your own light in the wilderness is a very God-like thing’ This event is free to professionals in the creative, digital and cultural sectors. If you would like to attend, please email Deborah.warden@leeds-art.ac.uk or call Creative Networks on 01422 399444.
