Gary Betts is a British sculptor, painter, illustrator, graphic designer, storyboard artist for film, creative director, art director and ceramicist. He was born in 1957, and grew up in a tough working class environment. Young Gary enrolled at art school and with support from his tutor, who recognized his talent, he became an artist. His works explore what lies behind the patterns, shapes and textures, they are enigmatic and unsettling. Betts is interested in both the idea and the image.
