Diving into the Sea



‘Diving into the Sea’

This print shows a winter swimmer diving from a concrete pier into the sea. Swimming is one of my passions, I have created this print mindful and with the aim to be precise depicting the instant when a diver finally lifts from the base and directs its body downwards to enter seamlessly in the water. The art print is created from my original ink drawings, I use calligraphic pens with chiselled nibs. A precise use of these pens forms patterns with a defined and distinctive rhythm and quality.

I created this print from my original ink drawings to which I apply colour digitally. Printed on fine art paper using archival inks. I issue the formats A1 & A2,A3 and A4  as limited editions of 100 where I individually sign and number each print.

Diving notes

Brighton throughout the early 1900s had a troupe of professional divers that used to perform Swedish diving, fancy and high diving and other aquatic acts. These daredevils performed their death-defying feats in front of crowds of Edwardian ladies and gents to the then-bustling pleasure West Pier.

Beach Art

This print belongs to the series of works I have created under the name ‘Beach Art’. This series celebrates people happily spending their leisure time at the beach. Swimmers, divers, paddleboarders and the occasional  tight-rope walker. Shimmering seas and bright sunny skies bathe with light these characters. The designs have a hint of nostalgia and in my own distinctive style echoes the works of artists such as Robert Tavener and the New Romantic British artists John Minton and Keith Vaughan. The West Pier appears in all the prints in the series. I created this series in April 2021 to mark the start of my art residency with the West Pier Trust.
