Gareth Griffiths

Gareth is a Welsh Sculptor originally from North Wales. He has exhibited across the UK in galleries in Liverpool (Tate Gallery), Leeds, Cardiff, London, as well as Europe and America. Most recently Gareth was elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Sculptors.

Gareth’s sculptures are influenced by West Coast architecture called “Googie”. Googie is characterized by Space Age designs symbolic of motion, such as boomerangs, flying saucers, atoms and parabolas, and free-form designs such as "soft" parallelograms and an artist's palette motif. These stylistic conventions represented American’s fascination with Space Age themes and marketing emphasis on futuristic design. Gareth’s sculptures are colourful and eye catching and are made with the intention of catching people’s attention and drawing people closer.
