‘Creator of the world’s smallest handmade sculptures in history’
Guinness Book of World Records
Born in 1957 in Wolverhampton, Willard Wigan began his artistic life at a tender age. Suffering from undiagnosed dyslexia and mild autism, Wigan struggled at school.
To escape the constant taunts from his teachers and student peers, Wigan found solace and peace in creating art of such minute proportions that it could not be seen with the naked eye. He adopted the belief that if his work could not be seen, then it and he could not be criticised. Often described as nothing, Wigan set about showing the world that there is no such thing as nothing.
