        Gavin Weir’s Training and Influences

        Gavin studied General Art & Design at Bournemouth & Poole Polytechnic (1992- 1994) and obtained a BA Honours in Fine Art (Drawing & Painting) from Brighton University (1994- 1997). The artist also has a P.G.C.E (Teacher Training) qualification at Strathclyde University (2002 - 2003). He takes inspiration from diverse artists such as Giovanni Canaletto, Vilhelm Hammershoi and Clive Head.

        Signature Style

        Working from observation, Gavin seeks to find a present truth through realism. Whether capturing landscapes, portraits, Still Life, urban scenes or trees, Gavin hones his signature painterly technique - one that approaches abstraction through experimenting with depth of field and challenging viewpoints. A key focus in Gavin's work is Scottish topography, where the artist is based. His panoramic vistas offer dynamic and dramatic sweeping landscapes, often presented from multiple perspectives.

        Gavin's imaginative paintings are sought after by collectors looking for compelling contemporary art. He has produced several artworks for multiple private commissions, including top tier businesses and private collections worldwide, from Europe and Australia to Canada and the USA.
