The Icon Project got some good news recently. After careful negotiation, we have managed to lower our basic expenses for being here which released funding that now allows us to start some renovation works and expand and improve our exhibition area. As a charity, The Icon Project has a precarious existence in these tough times, so we like to share our positive experiences with you when they happen.

“Black and white is the colour of ancient photographs. It is the colour of longing, loneliness, the night, ghosts, time passing, memory, fragments of memories, anxiety and madness.
It is like entering into a realm of mystery and dark magic. I realized that black and white is perfect to express my personality and the imagination in my work.” Katarzyna Sliwa JOYDI
Mark Duffy is a freelance artist who works primarily with acrylics and coloured pencils on canvas or illustration board. While not afraid to use other mediums he prefers the acrylics as they dry and can be changed quickly while still producing high quality effects. This versatility allows him to change the art around to suit the individual needs and tastes of the piece.
