The Artist

Rafael Glückstern Gardos was born in 1984 in Israel but he moved to Spain with his family when he was a little child. He spent most of his life there, but after living in several cities in Spain and after working as a painter in Madrid, he decided it was time to discover other countries. That is why he moved to Berlin for few years and Miami afterwards, before finally establishing in New York, where he has his own studio.

Since he moved to New York he has been able to showcase his artwork in different international art fairs, such as Red Dot Miami, Artexpo New York and Philadelphia Fine Art Fair. He has done exhibitions in Spain, Israel, Argentina, USA, etc. Rafael Glückstern is not only a studio painter, since he has also experience painting big murals outdoor and indoor in hotels and other businesses in New York, and for a couple of art galleries in Miami.

The Story

Rafael's piece for the Art of Sherlock Holmes is based on the story 'The Adventure of the Marchindale Stileto' by James Lovegrove.

James is the author of nearly 60 books, including The Hope, Days, United Kingdom, Provender Gleed, the New York Times bestselling Pantheon series, the Redlaw novels and the Dev Harmer Missions. He has produced five Sherlock Holmes novels and a Conan Doyle/Lovecraft mashup trilogy, The Cthulhu Casebooks. He has also written tie-in novels for the TV show Firefly. James has sold well over 50 short stories and published two collections, Imagined Slights and Diversifications. He has produced a dozen short books for readers with reading difficulties, and a four-volume fantasy saga for teenagers, The Clouded World, under the pseudonym Jay Amory.

James has been shortlisted for numerous awards, including the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the John W. Campbell Memorial Award, the Bram Stoker Award, the British Fantasy Society Award and the Manchester Book Award. His short story “Carry The Moon In My Pocket” won the 2011 Seiun Award in Japan for Best Translated Short Story. His work has been translated into fifteen languages, and his journalism has appeared in periodicals as diverse as Literary Review, Interzone, BBC MindGames, All About History and Comic Heroes. He contributes a regular fiction-review column to the Financial Times and lives with his wife, two sons and tiny dog in Eastbourne, not far from the site of the “small farm upon the South Downs” to which Sherlock Holmes retired. 

The authenticated prints of 'The Adventure of the Marchindale Stileto' are available from The Conan Doyle Estate.
