Classical Graffiti

Martin Cook

05 Jul 2017 - 30 Sep 2017

Martin Cook comes from a family of carvers dating back to 1730 and is based in Buckinghamshire. All of his work is individually designed and hand crafted using traditional tools. He approaches new pieces of work by hand drawing on board and then, using his knowledge of historical letterforms and calligraphy, creates a unique design that is then hand carved into natural British stone or wood using a hammer and chisel. Recent commissions include carved lettering for The Reading Room of The British Museum.

‘The love of art and good craftsmanship has run through my veins all my life. I drew from the moment I could pick up a pencil and have found no reason so far to stop.’

Martin Cook, 2017
