Dominic Wilcox is an artist and designer who lives and works in London. Born in Sunderland, Wilcox studied a BA at Edinburgh College of Art. He moved to Japan for a year before returning to the UK in 2000 to study an MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art. During this two-year period, he developed a series of objects including pieces such as War Bowl (plastic soldiers fused together to form a bowl); Honesty Stamps (stamps you can use when too busy to say things such as ‘In all my life I’ve never met anyone as beautiful as you’); and Glove (a glove made from the cast of his hand).

After leaving the RCA in 2002, Wilcox co-founded Mosley meets Wilcox, a design project and partnership. One major MMW project was a collaboration with rock photographer Mick Rock which ended in a collection of objects exclusively sold at Paul Smith shops.

In 2005 Dominic went solo and has since been commissioned to create art works and designs by organisations and individuals such as Nike, Esquire US magazine and ex supermodel Helena Christensen. His recent work includes a field of 700 shoes with green laces rising into the air which was shown at London's Selfridges and a Speed Creating project to make a new thing each day for thirty days which was shown at the Anti Design Festival 2010. He also maintains a popular ideas blog Variationsonnormal.com where he regularly uploads sketched designs and inventions that occur to him while going about his everyday life.
