Lives and works in Spain
This is work that draws on the past to reinvent the future.
Will Coles studied at the Ravensbourne College of Art, Wimbledon School of Art and Glasgow School of Art before settling in Sydney. Working in a variety of mediums, his sculptures are an unapologetic critique of consumer culture: religious icons, pop culture references, military accoutrements and symbols of death are deconstructed and reconstructed in honour of an iconoclastic process of resacralisation.
The element of surprise and humour in Coles’s works is reflected in his street practice—casting his small sculptures in concrete and situating them in unexpected urban spaces around the world. You might even find him as an ‘unofficial’ entrant in Sydney’s annual ‘Sculpture by the Sea’ event.
