The Artist

Ivor Abrahams

British ceramicist, sculptor and printmaker Ivor Abrahams was born in 1935 in Lancashire, England. Despite the opposition of his parents, Abrahams attended Saint Martins School of Art to study sculpture under Anthony Caro and Frank Martin, followed by the Camberwell School of Art. After completing his studies, he travelled around Europe, visiting works of art for inspiration before returning home to begin his own career. He became known for polychromatic prints and sculptures, depicting garden scenes, cityscapes, mythological scenes, animals (particularly owls) and the human figure. It is said his depictions of gardens are more about the English concept of a garden than a realistic portrayal of one.
