Chelsea Fine Art alumnus Bill Woodrow is currently exhibiting at the Royal Academy of Arts in their new venue for contemporary art, Burlington Gardens.

Bill studied his Masters at Chelsea from 1971 to 1972 and has gone on to gain international recognition for his work. He was also a Governor of the University of Arts London from 2003-2008.

From the Royal Academy website:

“This exhibition presents the first comprehensive survey of work by the sculptor Bill Woodrow RA. Comprising around 50 works, the exhibition spans Woodrow’s entire career and explores the themes of his oeuvre from the early 1970s to the present day, highlighting his humour and inventiveness and underpinning his influential role in contemporary sculpture.”
