Tony Cragg

Tony Cragg is a British born artist who rose to fame during the 1980s with his recycled object installations. His use of shape and color is careful yet humorous. From across the room his sculptures appear to be simple shapes, but up close they are small communities of found objects: metal intermingling with plastic, a broken hanger, a cracked plastic plate, a miniature army man. Cragg won the Turner Prize in 1988.
