Graham came to our attention as a steel fabricator, producing incredible sculptures from scrap metal. We were able to set him up with his own workshop and tools to produce contemporary figurative sculpture full-time. We’re proud to represent him via a body of work that’s set to ask questions about life, society and our own mortality.
