Originally from the North East of England, Gavin Dobson graduated in Fine Art in 2000. He uses both vivid colours and expressive strokes to create engaging and lively prints. 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.
Gavin Dobson is a member of London’s Print Club. He likes to experiment with new ways of printing and creating, pushing the boundaries of what screen-prints can be. He 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.
His screen-prints often depict colourful, nostalgic images. Gavin Dobson has a background in Graphic novels and his illustrations have been featured in various publications such as Gay Times. His designs have also been used as book covers for35 Bloomsbury.
Dobson’s work was featured in The Times by the art critic, Nancy Durrant and he continues to exhibit widely.
