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.
PIRAN TAKES CENTRE STAGE AT AMERICAN ART VENUE
For the second time, Piran has brought his unique and distinctive work to the United States and “Resurrection” is one of the central exhibits at Haas Hall at St. Thomas’ Whitemarsh Episcopal Church.
The stark and powerful painting is on display at Haas Hall for the foreseeable future and showcases Piran’s unique talent.
Previously, Piran has showcased his work at The Cricket Club in Philadelphia.
