Richard Long was born in Bristol, studied at the College of Art there and then went on to St Martins in London before moving back to Bristol to live. He is very successful, held many solo exhibitions, even one in the Tate.

One of his most famous works is A line made by walking, it is a mixture of performance art and sculpture. He would walk back and forth and photograph it afterwards.

A paragraph on his website sums up Long’s work perfectly.
