This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Liverpool, England, Tony Cragg became one of the leading contemporary installation* artists of the later part of the 20th century.  He is known for the wide diversity and unpredictability of his materials which include glass, porcelain, rubber, tree trunks and metals--anything that is in the material world.

He first worked as a laboratory technician, and then studied at Wimbledon School of Art, and from 1973 to 1977, the Royal College of Art.  He taught at the Kunstakademie in Dusseldorf from 1977, and has been a professor since 1988.  He works and exhibits occasionally in the United States, but from 1977 has lived in Wuppertal, Germany.

In the early 1970s, he worked as a laborer in an iron foundry, but he first earned a reputation as a sculptor in 1978 to 1982 for arranging found materials such as plastic, wood and tin cans in abstract imagery.  Later he switched to more recognizable subjects, but he did not begin working in metal until 1986 when he did a large outdoor work for the Tate Gallery, Liverpool.  From that time, he has had more than 140 solo shows, and he has a 10,000 square foot workshop.  In the 1990s, two of his most important commissions were for the Olympic Games in Atlanta, Georgia, and Battery Park in New York City.
