Biography for Allan Butt
Hi welcome to my prints.  I was born in Dewsbury in 1958.  I left school in 1974 and after studying fine art and graphic art at Batley Art College I trained as a ceramic tiler, then my passion for music took me on the road managing a rock band during the 80’s and after having visited Barcelona on my travels I got the mosaic bug from seeing Gaudi’s work which led me to start producing mosaic art.
Five years ago I set up the company Icon Mosaics with fellow mosaic artist Rita Gav, during this time we created a collection of stunning handmade mosaic portraits of iconic figures from the music, film and sport industries.  We sell our original mosaics through our own outlet but would like to make prints of these original artworks available to buy at Rippingham Art.   Prints are  available in two sizes, A1 (841 mm x 594 mm) and A2 (432.5mm x 610mm), prints are  limited editions signed by myself and come with a certificate of authenticity.  I hope you enjoy my work.
 
Biography for Rita Gav
Hi welcome to my prints.  I was born in Batley in 1971 and left school in 1986.  I studied ceramics and fine art at Batley Art College.  Following this I made a living from selling my original mixed media artworks before taking time out to go travelling around South East Asia and Australia taking inspiration from the different customs and cultures of the people along the way.   On my return I also visited Barcelona and was inspired by Gaudi’s work which led me to try my hand at mosaic making and I transferred some of my abstract images into mosaic form.  Following this I set up the business Icon Mosaics with Allan Butt and together we have been creating stunning handmade ceramic mosaics ever since.  I hope you enjoy my work.
