A Sleaford-based artist, who has overcome the physical difficulties of living with cerebral palsy to produce a series of paintings, is looking for a local gallery to display them.
Gavin Thackray-Jones has just completed an MA in fine art at De Montford University in Leicester.
Despite his condition affecting his dexterity, 29 year-old Gavin uses his unique style to produce striking and bold artwork.
He said: “My cerebral palsy provides me with an unique way of working on the floor and develops mark-making applications to the surfaces.
“My style has an expressionism appearance and I use popular culture iconography such as VW beetles, American flags and portraits. I work in charcoal, graphite, acrylic and oil paints.”
While studying in Leicester, Gavin curated his own pop-up solo-exhibitions, and sold several of his paintings.
He is now looking for a vacant shop space which he can turn into a studio and gallery to produce large paintings and sell them to the public.
