A Line and Tracks in Bolivia
Born in 1945 in Bristol, England, Richard Long studied in both Bristol and London before having his first solo exhibition in Dusseldorf in 1968.
To say that Richard Long is an artist that walks is an understatement. Long is an environmental artist that literally creates his art work from walking, as discussed in the article "In the Studio: Richard Long":
"That is the amazing and radical notion at the centre of Long's work: that walking could be the basis of a work of art."
When he isn't creating art by walking, he also has pieces created from other environmental materials, including the mud he can see from his home in Bristol, England.
