The work of Phillip King (born 1934 in Tunis, lives and works in London) is remarkable for its richness, variety of shapes and materials, and its freedom with which he went from one expression to another. From 1957 to 1958 he studied with Anthony Caro at St Martin's School of Art in London and became assistant to Henry Moore shortly after that. The reuse of existing forms and copying or resizing of his works are recurrent. Some of his works exist in several copies and in different materials. His teaching career in London and Berlin has had a great influence on the contemporary art scene and has deeply influenced many of his students such as young Richard Long.
