Originally from the North East of England, Gavin graduated in Fine Art in 2000, and has been building his profile and portfolio as an artist, specialising in painting and screen printing - often combining the two, which helps communicate his chosen narrative. Gavin uses both vivid colours and expressive strokes to create engaging and lively pieces. His recent abstract series ‘Landscapes of the Mind’ used the fluidity and movement of the paint to convey how an environment can effect ones state of thinking.
For the past 3 years Gavin has been a member of London's Print Club. This serves as a great creative work space and a hub to maintain and expand connections with other artists, as well as experiment with techniques and push boundaries of what screen-prints can be. With them Gavin has exhibited at the Affordable Arts fair for the past 3 years and was one of 20 artists chosen to create and exhibit at Somerset House as part of their Summer Screen Season with Film 4.
Gavin’s screen-prints often depict colourful, nostalgic images. Iconic designs which are humorous ornamentation and invite an opening for conversation. Gavin has a background in Graphic novels and his illustrations have been featured in many organisations, including creating editorial artwork for Gay Times and book cover designs for Bloomsbury.
