Gary Drew was born in Hartlepool (England) and educated In North Wales, He has attempted many career changes but the paint brush always dominated as he left his mark across Europe and both North and South America. Gary regularly travels the world in his work as a commercial artist, in addition to his commercial work (see Laser Maze for an example) he is regularly commissioned to create private murals and has created many other works of art. If you are looking for an artist to create commercial artwork, a private mural, or your own personal masterpiece, this naturally talented artist is more than capable of working with your ideas, whatever the location.

Gary describes what he does below, in his own words.

During the past years I have spent my time creating artwork for multiple use. This ranges from large Murals for both private and the business sector.  My main area is in the production of children’s murals for health clubs, schools and crèches I spend my time travelling throughout Europe, I have also had the privilege to design and paint calendars for the North Wales Police for a three year period to help with a health and safety campaign in house, I have also illustrated books and produced illustrations for a local book club.  In my spare time, I enjoy oil painting and water colours, and have had several exhibitions, one of which was held in the States.

My father is an accomplished sign writer and through him I was involved in painting for the community at Min Y Don Old Colwyn for Conway Council.  This involved getting the local children of all ages to help paint a toilet block in the local park, previously a graffiti hot spot, that problem was resolved with a mural along the outside of the building.  There was also another similar project at Towyn Leisure Centre were local school children painted pictures that were reproduced by ourselves on a large scale along with sporting figures to create an eye catching feature on approach to the centre.

Projects that have been produced locally on a larger scale include a mural on the wall of Bodies Fitness Centre Prestatyn and the design and painting throughout the Sun Centre in Rhyl and more recently the cartoon fish mural at Rhyl Leisure Centre.

The work I have produced varies in scale mediums and styles and I have published a wide variety of pictures on the website, to show the range of my work.
