Gary Scholes is a mixed-media visual artist based in London.
‘The inspiration for the work of Gary Scholes often comes from illustrated books, photographs and other printed material such as maps and instruction manuals. He is also influenced by the popular culture of his youth, referencing toys, games and comics. From these sources Gary selects images that appeal to him and juxtaposes them in a way that subverts their meaning and produces something visually interesting, translating the resultant combinations into paintings, prints or sculptures.’
