Gary Sams

Gary Sams

Gary Sams is a British artist who now lives and paints in Alicante, Spain. Gary was born in Surrey and moved to Poole in Dorset when he was 5 years old.

His earliest memories of art were drawing dinosaurs and constantly making marks and scribbling on whatever he could find, which led his parents to buying him a set of paints, and he never looked back. So, crayons, chalk etc developed into pastels, poster paints and then eventually oils.

He attended the Arts Institute in Bournemouth from 1994-97 where he studied Illustration. There Gary learned a variety of techniques and mediums, and gained plenty of experience. He soon discovered that light, shadow and a simplistic approach had a much more powerful impact than a painting that looks like a photograph.

Gary’s biggest aim in painting is to touch someone on a deeper more personal level and evoke a powerful response. He has a traditional style of painting that takes your breath away when you see one of his originals. Gary loves to paint cities of the world and of course his stunning coastal scenes.

Painting is an enlightening and personal practice in Gary’s life, and he regards it as a form of meditation that keeps him in a “present state of mind”.
