Enigmatic Piran Strange is a modern artist and champion of the arts and Cornish heritage.
His visually bold and unique work adorns many walls in the City – and those of his extensive clientele.
He owes his inspiration to the notion that everyone contains the spirit of an “inner Piran” – a heroic streak that enables us to shine and commit acts of derring-do.
Inspired by the Saint of Cornish Tin Miners, the artist is the alter ego of London-based insurance broker, David Barrie.
David is also a trustee of the St Piran Trust – a Cornish charity committed to excavating the oldest Christian building on mainland Britain – the Oratory Chapel, currently buried by sand dunes at Perranporth.
David stages his latest exhibition – The Cornish Initiative – in aid of St Piran Trust
and the Little Harbour Children’s Hospice
at The Royal Opera Arcade in Pall Mall, St James’s, SW19 5NG
From September 23rd to September 29th, 2018
