Richard Wright has won this year’s Turner Prize. The winner was announced last night at Tate Britain.

The artist was nominated for his intricate wall paintings, which feature images and patterns from medieval paintings, graphics and typography.

For the Turner Prize 2009 exhibition he has produced a beautiful gold leaf work, which is painted directly onto the gallery wall.

The painting will be destroyed at the end of the show, so make sure you catch it while you can!

Turner Prize 2009 is at Tate Britain until 3 January.
