Summary

Gary's passion is working with found and recycled objects, rescuing and transforming them into new and beautiful objects. Part art/part archeology, his pieces often reflect over 1,000 years of London history; from Roman occupation through the great plagues and fires that have blighted London, through empire building and brisk commerce, right up to the present day. Whether mixed media collages, jewellery, mosaics or sculpture, each piece is unique and always has a story to tell.

Gary was born and raised in Stepney in London's East End; his family history can be traced back for at least 200 hundred years in London, probably longer. Over the past several years Gary has had his work exhibited both in London and in New York City, where he spent a number of years working on urban art projects as well as exploring the less-well-trodden city parks in search of American and British Revolutionary artefacts.

After working at the United Nations for a number of years I decided to spend more time following my passion for art and antiques and started a business based in NYC. This allowed me more time to travel the United States looking for items of interest, as well as giving me the chance to see America through some of the objects that define its past.
