Gary Betts

Born in 1957 - United Kingdom


Gary Betts is an English artist born in 1957, he lives and works in London. After taking a course in arts, he worked iin the graphic designing, illustration, story boarding and artistic film making field for 25 years, and then made his way towards painting, ceramic and sculpture as an artist.

Gary Betts has always explored the human form, but the idea behind the image has been his defining style. His art conveys his personal insights, giving the raw material a voice that is alive. His work is often described as enigmatic, sometimes unsettling, yet there is a gentle sensitivity about it that is dignified and perhaps not immediately obvious to the spectator. Betts is inspired by the shock of transformation when the mask is put on (or removed). For Betts, the mask is not necessarily an object of visual concealment. In many cultures, being masked not only questions a person’s identity but their reality — even in the realms of the natural or supernatural.

Having exhibited nationally to great critical acclaim at Cork Street in 2008 and 2012, and most recently in Miami for Scope Basel 2014, this year Betts displayed his iconic anamorphic sculptures at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, in addition to the Religionis Violenta exhibition. He has recently been made a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors and the Society of Designer Craftsmen. His sculptures are held in private collections worldwide.
