Northern Fire is an artistic collective bringing together a unique group of practicing artists. Established tattooists, designers, leatherworkers, printers and craftsmen.
We celebrate the ancient cultures of Northern Europe such as Nordic, Celtic, Pictish and Anglo Saxons in our art. The history and the culture of Britain has been inexorably shaped by these different cultural influences. From the earliest known inhabitants of this island such as the Neolithic people, Celts and Picts and the later settlers such as the Anglo Saxons and Vikings, their influence on our world and cultures is still just under the surface. So familiar yet so mysterious....we aim to rekindle the artistic embers of those amazing forgotten cultures, and bring them back to modern world.
Northern Fire was founded by Sean, Broc and Duncan with the aim of creating a space where hand picked artists can share their art with the public all in one location. We do all the logistical stuff in order to leave our artists completely free to do what they do best. We choose to be a collective as we believe strongly in giving back as much as possible to the artist and aim to keep a cohesion in the art and wares we release. Our main goal is to make sure the artists financially benefit from their time and skill, receive recognition for their works and to share with you, the general public, their passions and works.
Now, for the first time, we have gathered together for you some of the best artists of the North!
Many more artists to be announced ;)
