Richard Long (Bristol, June 2, 1945) is a visual artist, leading member of the Land Art movement that is part of conceptual art.

After graduating at the West of England College of Art in Bristol, between 1966 and 1968 he attended the well-known St Martin’s School of Art in London. Early Long let his walks to be witnessed by momentary tracks or sculptures made with very simple materials, procured locally, and later he also uses natural materials to create sculptures of big dimensions, even in confined spaces. Internationally renowned artist, he has exhibited around the world and his works are among the most prestigious collections of contemporary art.
