Gavin Dobson Biography

Gavin Dobson

Originally from the North East of England, I graduated in Fine Art in 2000, and have been building my profile and portfolio as an artist specialising in painting and screen printing - often combining the two, which helps communicate my chosen narrative. I use both vivid colours and expressive strokes to create engaging and lively pieces. My 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.

My screen-prints often depict colourful, nostalgic images. Iconic designs which are humorous ornamentation and invite an opening for a conversation. I have a background in Graphic novels and my illustrations have been featured in many organisations, including creating editorial artwork for Gay Times and book cover designs for Bloomsbury.

My ongoing dedication has led to various interviews surrounding my work and being featured in The Times by the art critic, Nancy Durrant, as part of her great art gift guide which has been both motivating and a great platform for me.
