Profile image of Nicholas RowsellNicholas Rowsell was born around midnight on the 17th/18th of August 1960 during a dry electrical storm, in Hackney, London. This fact, according to Nick, is "Perhaps the most interesting thing about me as apparently lightbulbs were popping like champagne corks"
Nicholas first picked up a hammer and chisel with the intension of creating a sculpture in 1987`and has been carving one or more pieces of sculpture ever since and does not look like he is going to stop.
Nick was working as a stonecladder on a major building project in Berkley Square...

Sculpture description:
This hand carved sculpture depicts a symmetrical platonic kiss between a person of colour and a Caucasian man.[ Mandela and De Clerk] It would be fair to say that I had in mind, at the time, the unification of South Africa. I wished to mark that time with a piece that would reflect the politics of that country at that particular change of regime.
Artist's comments:
This piece was originally a convict block that a French prisoner of war would have masoned whilst in captivity. It was offered to myself by one of the tutors at Weymouth college to carve something of significance. When fully carved and displayed it proved to be very popular with some and an anathema to others.
