Biography

Stefhan Caddick is a Wales-based artist who works in video, installation and performance.

He is the recent recipient of a Major Creative Wales Award from the Art Council of Wales (2013), and has been commissioned for various artistic projects including Pickle Lane (2013) for Fourth Wall Festival, Ghost Parade (2012) for the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and The Magician’s Cat (2004) at the Welsh National Opera.
