Picti - Celtic Illumination
image

The antithesis of modern expressionist art, it relies on complete accuracy and a slow build up of material to achieve it’s result, but it provides a microcosm of interest where no space is unused, and each element skillfully combined and balanced harmoniously to maximum effect.

The work of this artist, however, is by no regard mere copying of existing works; on the contrary, while utilising the techniques and structures of ancient Celtic Art, he employs them in a totally individual style to create his own designs. Respectfully contributing to the continuation and evolution of a cultural heritage which has lain dormant for over a thousand years and has been largely ignored in contemporary art, but which still has much to offer.


It is emphatically not a style which one can instantly adapt; it requires years of patient training, practice and self-discipline to master the extremely complex techniques of this art form, and is a continuous learning process. Shunning all modern design and drawing aids, the finished artworks are the product of hand-eye co-ordination, which combine the amazing complexity of the ancient elements in a uniquely effective way.
