Richard Wright (born 1960) is a British artist. He was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2009.

Wright was born in London. His family moved to Scotland when he was young. He attended Edinburgh College of Art from 1978 to 1982. He lives in Glasgow.

He is a painter who decorates architectural spaces with intricately detailled geometric patterns in paint and gold leaf. Turner Prize judge Andrea Schlieker described him as a "painter who rejects the canvas"; fellow judge Jonathan Jones called him a "modern fresco painter".
