Life's a Carnival with Nic Joly

Unpredictable, explosive and full of tightrope balances, life can sometimes feel like a circus act. Nic's sell-out collection, Life's a Carnival, was a front-row seat to the "greatest show on Earth" when it launched in November 2017. 

Although these titles are now sold out, we have a range of available pieces, including his NHS-inspired 'We Can Be Heroes' sculpture, which will help to raise funds for charity.

The concept for the collection took a year to develop. While the research, testing, technology (and a lot of late nights) were a steep learning curve, it was one which Nic thoroughly enjoyed.

Each original piece has a microcomputer in the back, which had to be programmed and coded to work with the infrared sensors and nano LED lights. Nic says: “What I have been trying to achieve has never been done before using this technology, so I have had to learn from scratch and make up the rules as I go along.”

Nic took his show to our Guildford, Stratford-upon-Avon and South Molton Street galleries. Our collectors had a blast, as you can see!

"Life is a ticket to the greatest show on Earth, so buckle up and let the carnival begin!"
