Antonio Fazio: Art in Stone

Born in Sicily, Italy, Antonio Fazio moved to the southwest of Ireland to West Kerry’s Dingle Peninsula in 1991, where he now lives and works. Fascinated and inspired by ancient Celtic design, Irish mythology and wildlife, he began to carve his ideas in stone. Since then he has created stone carvings that have been bought by collectors from around the world.

cross97Using both three dimensional sculpture and relief carvings, Antonio’s work is strongly influenced by an Irish history of stone working that reaches back over two millennia, and yet he brings a contemporary freshness to the themes, seamlessly integrating the Celtic tradition with his Sicilian background to produce a timeless art of great beauty and power.
