Nigel Connell Bass
With pieces in both public and private collections in Ireland. the UK, Europe and USA , Nigel Connell Bass is making his presence felt in the art world with his sought-after sculptural depictions of birds and animals.
A British artist living in West Cork, Ireland. Self taught in a multitude of disciplines, Nigel Connell Bass is well known for his sculpture work in recycled metals, predominantly life-size depictions of birds and animals.
He worked for 10 years, as a scenic artist for a busy Theatre production company, before moving with a young family to Ireland in 1996.
Bringing up a young family after the move to Ireland, and completing a self-build house, meant that for a few years, art took a backseat role as he worked mainly painting, decorating and sign-writing to make a regular living wage.
In 2015 Nigel returned to art full-time. He is enjoying success regularly exhibiting his sculpture work at prestigious venues throughout Ireland and continues to explore new concepts in sculpture and also painting in acrylics onto rusted metal sheets.
