Born in Manchester, England, Spriggs now lives and works in Vancouver and is well-known for his large-scale installations through which he probes the symbolic, cultural and historical significance of light. Spriggs received his Bachelor or Fine Art from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in 1999 and his MFA in sculpture from Concordia University in 2007. His work has been shown nationally and internationally.

There is a non-denominational universality about our relationship with light. People of all faiths and none recognise this entity’s miraculous, life-giving authority and continued to be dazzled by it. As such, Spriggs’ work has been presented in a number of countries, captivating audiences of all cultural backgrounds. He prefers to leave open any specific meaning leaving the individual to appreciate and attach his or her own personal consideration to the work whilst recognizing that by doing so they in turn are sharing a common bond.
