LOVE ART BUY ART Interview: Gary Shaw

In our final artist interview, GTG Director Peter Richards speaks with Gary Shaw. Born in England, Shaw studied for his first degree in fine art at the University of South Australia. The endless variety of patterns and colours has always appealed to Gary, as witnessed by his blocks of solid colour, his painting of jockeys silks, the maritime flags and the geometrical shapes used to communicate with the viewer. Gary has recently been developing a new body of work drawing the many characters he sees from his studio and on his travels.
