Illustrations by Carne Griffiths

. . . Carne Griffiths’ unique style of intricately adorned, yet flamboyantly rhythmic portrait studies are created with an unusual range of wet media. Calligraphy ink, coffee, tea, brandy and vodka cover his paper. Geometric shapes and floral forms are woven around his faces of misty blue green haze and rich ochres. I’m drawn to his style because it suggests the element of air and water. The flourishing contour lines seem to spring to life, dance and rest, revealing the faces with mystical character . . .
