Street Hermit is a collection of small works painted on wood, made by Graeme Todd in 2016 during a period of residency in Monteluco, in the mountains near Spoleto, where he had visited before.
Monteluco ties its history to the hermits since the fifth century AD, when some monks coming from Syria settled on the mountain and turned it into a place of worship. To this day its mystical tradition continues through the cult of Saint Francis. The time passed working in solitude in these woods and the knowledge of Giotto‘s frescoes and of the great Italian masters present in Umbria influenced Graeme Todd‘s work.
Graeme Todd lives in Dunbar, a town on the east coast of Scotland and teaches art at The University of Edinburgh with whom he has published the book Street Hermit.
