Graham Fish is a well established artist with work in public and private collections, and his recent commissions have been for P&O Arcadia.
He is well known for his stunning paintings of the sea - which reveal a depth of understanding of the power and charisma of this natural force that is so present in the South West. As a keen surfer he is intrigued with the process of trying to reveal the sea in all its wonder, and somehow capture that on canvas. Some of the canvases he produces are massive - seascapes,the figure and portraits are given the large scale treatment.
