b. 1963- Nic Fiddian-Green is renowned the world over as an equestrian sculptor. Whilst studying at Chelsea School of Art Fiddian-Green took a trip to the British Museum and found inspiration in the shape of the head of the horse of Selene,
'The encounter paved my future. It was as if lightning had struck twice in the same place. The horse's head was so beautifully made, so considered, so right. It was as if it had been carved by the golds: a lesson in balance and harmony and proportion. Immediately it became my benchmark. For the past 30 years I've focused on capturing the beauty of a horse's head.'
His 33ft 'Still Water' has become a beloved fixture at Marble Arch London and other works are installed at Royal Ascot, Glyndebourne, Southwark Cathedral and internationally in Australia, America, Russia and the Middle East.
Nic lives and works in the Surrey Downs
