Nic Fiddean Green

The spirit and power of this noble servant and master to man - the horse- has been a long term obsession for artist, Nic Fiddian-Green, who only sculpts horses’ heads.
Working from his studio in Godalming in Surrey, Nic has produced sculptures which have been exhibited in major galleries and art fairs in Paris, New York, Sydney, Hong Kong and Dubai, to name a few. And his next exhibition entitled ‘Recent Sculpture’ comes to both Sladmore Galleries in the West End of London in June this year.
You can see his sculptures for yourself at some of the country’s big racecourses – Goodwood and Royal Ascot – or take a trip to Marble Arch in London so see a replica of this sculpture ‘Horse Drinking’ (pictured right when it was on display at Glyndebourne Opera House in Sussex).
Some say Nic’s recent battle with a life-threatening illness has made his work stronger and deeper, showing us how his spirit and faith have helped him stay strong and triumph over the physical barriers. His work is often described as powerful, spiritual and emotional. And it’s the spirit and power of one of the most noble animals on the planet that triggered Nic’s obsession with horses.  Nicky Moffat - Horse & Rider
