      Gavin Dobson

      Gavin Dobson is a London based artist specialising in painting.

      Story telling is very important within Gavin's work - he is am fascinated by unearthing new stories and situations to take into his painting, alongside creating imagery from narratives throughout his own life. Gavin tends to keep his paintings loose and expressive, using fluid movements and textures to create engaging and lively pieces whilst thoughtfully leading the viewer to a chosen narrative. Gavin rarely know what a painting will look like until he begins the process, often using the canvas previously as a palette to create marks and mix colours unconsciously before it is used as the beginnings of a piece itself. This helps him keep the painting fresh and he especially enjoy finding the visuals often from the marks which were created without thought.

      In recent years, Gavin has found his practice organically moving towards examining homosexuality, looking into the various subcultures which are still prevalent and the secret codes and behaviours which surround them.
