A BRUSH WITH DEATH RE­NEWED Nic Fid­dian- Green’s ZEST FOR LIFE—AND HIS ART. THE MAS­TER OF EQUINE SCULP­TURE TELLS Madeleine Ross ABOUT AN EPIC RIDE OF PAS­SION AND PER­SE­VER­ANCE

Hong Kong Tatler - - Art -

Nic fid­dian-green was raised in the English coun­try­side, rear­ing and rid­ing horses on his fam­ily’s es­tate. “Horses were just a part of life,” the for­mer Eto­nian tells me as we sip hot cof­fee from pa­per cups on an Arc­tic day. We’re brav­ing the cold to ad­mire his lat­est work, Horseat­wa­ter, which kisses the sur­face of a shal­low pool out­side the head­quar­ters of Swire in the Quarry Bay dis­trict of Hong Kong Is­land. This is the first of his works to be erected in Asia—the first of many, he hopes—but dozens al­ready adorn the cities and land­scapes of Europe and Australia. Per­haps his most fa­mous piece— Still­wa­ter, the sculp­ture that first piqued the in­ter­est of the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity— stands at Lon­don’s Mar­ble Arch.
