Graham Short ~ The Hands of Genius

Graham Short has spent almost half a century honing his craft, going to physical and mental extremes to produce the highest-quality artefacts in the world. Graham was born in Birmingham in 1946 and after serving a six-year apprenticeship at the country's premier engraving company he set up as a one-man engraving business in Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter in 1974, soon developing a client list including the Royal Household, the Scottish Parliament, The National Gallery, Rolls Royce, gunmakers James Purdey & Sons, and Vivienne Westwood. Graham's desire to produce an engraving so small as to be illegible to the naked eye led to the making of his masterpiece The Lord's Prayer Engraved on the Head of a Gold Pin, which can only be seen properly through a powerful microscope. After a national newspaper discovered Graham’s genius the demand for his work was immediate. His first fine art show was an instant sell out. For his next project Graham produced “Cutting edge”, where he engraved “Nothing is Impossible” on the sharp edge of a razor blade. As a result Graham hit instant global celebrity status. Graham has now become one of the most talented and collectible living artists in the world.

Graham has completed less than 56 pieces throughout his career making his artwork incredibly rare and highly prized

All of Graham's Pieces are supplied ready to view. They will be supplied either stand mounted or in a bespoke hand crafted oak box complete with custom made microscope and led lighting. Each piece is priced individually and is calculated based on time to complete. We are able to organise personal viewings of all his work.
