Piers Mason

BORN:
Born 1974 and grew up in the New Forest.

LIVES:
East Sussex

EARLY LIFE:
Before becoming a sculptor Piers trained as a painter but quickly realised that his perception of space was not flat.

EDUCATION:
Piers Mason graduated in Fine Art, and went on to complete a PGCE in Fine Art, and a Masters Degree (Winchester/Barcelona) in European Fine Art. He is a visiting lecturer at the University of Hertfordshire.

CAREER:
He has spent significant periods overseas, especially in Africa, and as a result he acts as an Art Consultant for income generating community projects in developing countries, serves as Project Director and facilitator on VSO Vocational Arts and Crafts project in Kenya and is a Founder, Director and Trainer for a fair trade community Art and Craft project empowering Masai women in Kenya.

MEDIUMS USED IN WORK:
Stainless Steel, Brass, Copper and recycled matals.

SUBJECTS OF WORK:
He was inspired to make the Crested Cranes following an encounter in Kenya a few years ago. Mason says “I was cycling through the savannah on my own, when two Crested Cranes flew up behind me and continued to fly either side of me just a few meters away. We stayed in this formation for what seemed like ages as time appeared to slow with their majestic movements, flying so close to the ground and at a slow pace for them. I was pedaling at quite a speed to keep up, yet felt clumsy and slow by comparison” Piers has always had a fascination with animals and their environment. This inspired him to recreate endangered species.

EXHIBITIONS:
He has exhibited in the UK, Europe and Africa, and has completed commissions for, amongst others, the Welsh Secretary of State, the Wangari Mathi Memorial (Nobel Peace prize winner) and the World Bank.
