We are proud to be exhibiting two sculptures by Gareth Griffiths called “Burbank” & “Roybark”

Gareth’s Sculpture is influenced by American west coast architecture called Googie. Googie architecture was born of the post-WWII car-culture and thrived in the 1950s and 1960s. Bold angles, colourful signs, plate glass, sweeping cantilevered roofs and pop-culture imagery captured the attention of drivers on adjacent streets. Bowling alleys looked like tomorrow land, coffee shops looked like something in a Jetsons cartoon. For decades, many “serious” architects decried Googie as frivolous or crass. But today we recognise how perfectly its form followed its function.

Gareth is a Welsh Sculptor from North Wales. He studied sculpture at Bretton Hall college (University of Leeds) graduating in 2002, and then subsequently went on to complete a Masters in Design from Leeds Metropolitan in 2004. Gareth also became a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 2015.

Since graduating, Gareth has been shortlisted for the prestigious Welsh young artist of the year award for the national Eisteddfod Wales and has been included in various shows including Collect gallery, Liverpool, White-wall Gallery, Leeds, Whitehall waterfront Gallery, Leeds and was included in the Liverpool Biennale in 2008 and had work on show in different locations including Tate Liverpool

Both sculptures will be on display in the ground floor reception until October 2018 and are available to purchase. For any information about them contact info@artful.org.uk | 0208 702 8030. Sculptures will be on display until 03.10.2018.
