Working primarily in calligraphy inks, graphite and unexpected liquids such as tea, brandy and vodka, Griffith’s fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line.

Griffths was originally from Liverpool, but moved to the South and graduated from Kent Institute of Art and Design in 1995.  He served an apprenticeship at the world’s oldest gold wire embroidery firm where he worked for 12 years as a gold wire designer and eventually rose to become the creative director.  Griffiths produced intricate designs for the military, film, theatre, fashion and advertising industries.  His designs were used for the uniforms in the films, Valkyrie, The Last King of Scotland and in particular his “Red Death Coat” was used in The Phantom of the Opera.  Carne Griffith’s elaborate floral designs for Asprey were included in their first ever catwalk collection and his work was featured on the cover of the Royal Variety Performance programme in 2008.

Since establishing his own studio in 2010, Carne Griffiths has exhibited in the UK at the London Original Print Fair at the Royal Academy, London Art Fair as well as overseas at Arts After Dark, New Orleans, 2010 and Urban in Ibiza, 2011.

“In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida”  was painted in ink, tea and vodka.  This unique guitar was hand-crafted in Swamp Ash and Maple wood.
