Icon Mosaics is the creation of two internationally known mosaic artists Allan Butt and Rita Gav both based in the Northern town Batley.
They specialise in creating ceramic mosaic portraits of iconic figures from the music, film and sport industries each in their own distinctive styles. Each mosaic is created using thousands of hand cut pieces of ceramic tile, this is a very time consuming process but produces exceptional fine detail and stunning results. The artists have taken the ancient form of mosaic art and brought in into the 21st century adding vivid colours and a contemporary edge. Allan and Rita are both huge fans of the Catalan Architect Antoni Gaudi and have taken inspiration from his stunning architecture and mosaic works in Barcelona.
Both artists are available for private mosaic commissions upon request, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org with enquiries regarding private commissions.Allan and Rita have worked on various private commissions for prestigious clients.
