I am Gavin Mundy, a visual artist living and working in Surrey (United Kingdom). I was a prolific drawer even in childhood and ventured into graphics and design but I continued to draw and later taught myself to paint. I use traditional techniques alongside modern acrylic paints for most of my art.
Viewers of my art are invited to appreciate and enjoy the subject of the painting rather than the technique. Light, texture and pattern are intriguing to me and have always been a focus of interest, consequently the subjects I paint can be of secondary importance and perhaps the reason for such a varied body of work.
Another aspect of painting that I enjoy is the learning. This could be figuring out the technique of capturing an effect in paint or something about the subject itself.
