Camel Graffiti, 2005.
17” x 23” Archival Inkjet Print in an Edition of 25.
Pairing the soft azure sky with the harsh, rocky terrain, Morgan Silk masters the interplay of contrasting textures in this atypical depiction of a camel smoking a cigarette. Stencilled on to the side wall of a lone outhouse in the middle of the desert landscape, this absurd camel adds a touch of humour to the depiction of nature's beauty.
About the Artist:
Morgan Silk was born and raised in England's brewing capital of Burton-on-Trent and studied photography at Blackpool and Fylde College, graduating in '92 before moving to London, where he began retouching for some of London's top photographers and advertising agencies.
Ten years on, he made the decision to follow his heart and returned to photography, shooting personal work that would soon gain international exposure through London gallery shows and winning awards including a prestigious AOP Gold Award for his Zoo project.
It wasn't long before he embraced a new commercial career, traveling the world, shooting for leading clients and brands, while still maintaining his passion for fine art photography, digital post-production, and printmaking.
Morgan’s other interests include guitars and music technology, hydroponics, and all things fermentable. His first collaboration beer with Burton based DE14 Brewery, “Morgan Silk” NEIPA was proudly launched at Craft Beer Rising in London, 2018.
