ART


Artist: Dylan Scott Pierce

Dylan Scott Pierce(born ca. 1986) is an American child prodigy who excels at painting.
His work consists primarily of animal and natural imagery.


Pierce’s work has been compared to Henri Rousseau’s in its illustration of the absurdity of man’s self-imprisonment in the menagerie of form. His work has been featured on QVC, profiled by a publication of the National Geographic Society, and he has a partnership with SeaWorld. He is also a photographer who did work in that field during safaris in Africa.


He is currently active in both conservation and autism issues.

The show stars film actor Josh Harnett (making his West End debut) as Charlie and Adam Godley as Raymond, and has already experienced its share of bumps. Original director David Grindley left during early rehearsals, and his duties were taken over by director/playwright Terry Johnson. Recently, it delayed its opening date from Sept. 9 to Sept. 19.”:
