Story of an Artist
I am an illustrator standing firmly on the invisible bridge between the now and the then, expressing narrative through visual art. Expanding the interpretation of myths from our past, connecting them to our present through visual communication. I work in mixed media, gouache, collage and digital, Handcrafted organic work, with rich colours in the fantasy genre, is my forte.
Cradle of the Fae
S. ALEX PERCIVAL
Combining a unique artistic voice with a playful, evocative exploration of the past and the future. I delight in creating the visual interpretation of the narratives of myths and legends.
"The tide recedes but leaves behind bright seashells on the sand,
The sun goes down, but gentle warmth still lingers on the land,
The music stops and yet it echoes on in sweet refrains...
For every joy that passes, something beautiful remains".
CRADLE OF THE FAE
Cradle of the Fae is my inspiration for creating visual art for all things magical and mythological, from the sublime to the savage. I specialise in mythology and legend. The visual focus is on the organic, and natural elements - the narrative is one of human nature and magic, stories and illusions. The theme is of Africa and the original threads of the stories which weave us all together in our past, present and future. These will ever enlighten us and show the way forward, the way back and the way forward again.
