Aidan Harte is a Dublin-based sculptor. He works in bronze. His pieces can be distinguished by their dark patination as well as subject matter: Harte freely draws inspiration from Classical and Celtic mythology, and enjoys bringing disreputable characters like the Minotaur and the Pookas roaring back to life.
His sensuous modelling and fluency in anatomy was acquired studied classical sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art.
Prior to that, he worked in the Oscar-nominated Cartoon Saloon, creating and directing Skunk Fu for CBBC and Cartoon Network which was nominated for a BAFTA and won an IFTA in 2008. His first novel, Irenicon, was published by Jo Fletcher Books, Hachette in 2012 and shortlisted for the David Gemmell award for Best Debut. His last, Spira Mirabilis, was published in the USA in 2016.
