Let us introduce to you, Nic Fiddian-Green, a unique and inspirational British artist seeking fame from his massive heads! Fiddian-Green’s colossal, classically inspired equine heads are exhibited around the world in prominent locations, including ‘Still water ‘, the 30-foot head of a drinking horse right next to the Marble Arch in London.
He was inspired ever since he saw a fifth-century B.C. carving of the head of a horse of Selene from the Parthenon at the British Museum. Since then he has worked at perfecting the form of the horse’s head, asdian-Green’s colossal, classically inspired equine heads are exhibited around the world in prominent locations, including ‘Still water ‘, the 30-foot head of a drinking horse right next to the Marble Arch in London.
Celebrities have also found his work irresistible and collectors include J.K. Rowling, Ringo Starr, Tom Cruise and Russell Crowe.
The “Horse at Water” at Marble Arch has become a much loved London Landmark, I get emails, letters and photos everyday from people enthused by the piece and its prominent position, as I also used to do for the 35 ft high “Artemis” on the Trundle hill looking out to the Isle of Wight. It was a a moving experience to see the massive “Head of Christ” unveiled at Southwark cathedral, Nic and his wife Henrie hosted a marvellous opening evening. Where The Very Reverend Andrew Nunn, The Dean of Southwark and Nic spoke eloquently about the piece and the excellent reception It had received from the congregation and the visitors. This piece will be the centrepiece Of our exhibtion in Jermyn street in June.
This Summer Nic will be showing at both our galleries in the West end, on the Terrace of the Economist building off St James street, in Mount Street gardens, And at Royal Ascot and Goodwood. We will also be publishing new books on different aspects of his work over the coming months, all details will be posted on this site. Major monumental works have been installed this year in Russia, America , the middle East, Australia and works are in progress to go to many other destinations.
