Devotees is a series of portraits that celebrate the diversity of devotees within ISKCON, the International society for Krishna Consciousness. Inspired by the philosophy and values of the society, artist Fergus Quinn has used his skills to glorify these people who have dedicated their lives to this mission brought by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada – to be a servant of his servants.
Fergus Quinn discovered his love for drawing and painting at a young age. He was mainly inspired to focus on drawing birds and other wildlife, as well as scientific books that had illustrations. Most of his family is very good at drawing, so it was natural for him to go in that direction. He finds art a relaxing and calming activity and finds it is very satisfying to see the results. Although he has tried many mediums,but he loves using watercolour pencils most of all.After graduating from Middlesex University in 1998 with a BA (Hons) in Illustration, he worked as a freelance graphic artist and designer creating vinyl record and CD covers. After some years, he returned to his passion for painting and drawing and produced a large body of work. He set up Eagle Arts in 2007 to showcase my art projects. He mainly likes to paint and draw portraits of people from around the world; celebrating the diversity that still remains in our world that seems to be getting lost because of mainstream culture.
