At regular intervals through the year the GMC will feature artists whose work relates to maritime issues. Art can be a powerful way of communicating. It tells a story that words alone cannot. One of the aims of the GMC is to help people ‘see the sea’ – to see and appreciate its multiple personalities and uses. Art can inspire, provoke, move and excite. Through the GMS’s Featured Artist initiative, and exhibitions we hold, we hope to connect people with our oceans and seas.
Our current Featured Artist is Theo Crutchley-Mack and you can find his full page with more of his works, his relationship with maritime issues, and further links here.
“Theo Crutchley-Mack was born in Bristol in 1994 and has lived in various parts of the UK including West Yorkshire, West Wales and South Cornwall. At the age of 16 he became the first teenager to design a 50 pence coin for the Royal Mint which was later released into circulation throughout the United Kingdom. This sparked a specific interest in drawing which has driven his visual journey through to the current day. Theo went on to pursue this interest and studied BA (Hons) Drawing at Falmouth University in Cornwall.”
Our previous, and first, featured artist was Vince Bevan and you can find his work here.
