Specialising in public art sculpture, Graeme Mitcheson graduated from Loughborough College of Art in 1995 and won his first significant commission on ‘Cures’, a 2-metre tall, hollow white limestone column with a spiralling inscription of more than 3,000 carved letters for the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. His other major works include an 8-tonne granite Millennium sundial in Leicestershire and four sculptural seats for New Walk in Leicester, an ancient walkway into the heart of the city. His tactile and eye-catching work can been seen all over the UK, with sculptures in Belfast, Northumberland and Wales. He will be bringing models and maquette used in advance of making the large-scale public artworks to the Sculptors’ Studio, to give an insight in to the preparation and planning involved in creating his full-size finished works. Visitors to the show will be able to see scaled versions of The Flower, a life-sized bust of The Scout and Mussel.
