ABOUT THE ARTIST
Gareth Griffiths is an artist who lives and works in Leeds in the UK. His passion and his outstanding talent as a sculptor led him to exhibit and collaborate with important institutions such as the TATE Liverpool and the Liverpool Biennale. He joined the Royal Society of British Sculptors in 2015. Gareth is passionate about the Googie movement, a futuristic architectural style born in the 40s in Southern California, which is characterized by minimalistic constructions with bright colours and large and simple geometric structures, elements which can be found in the artists sculptures. The artist moulds and polishes the steel to give it a light and mouldable impression. His use of organic forms such as folds and curvatures reinforce their malleability and create dynamic pieces, full of movement.
We are happy to present a series of sculptures created by Gareth Griffiths, available exclusively at Artig Gallery. All works are originals, signed by the artist and come with a signed certificate of authenticity. Delivery in perfect condition, directly from the artist’s studio.

IN MY OWN WORDS
“I have been interested in architecture from a young age, I first came across Googie Architecture after visiting west coast of America some time ago and sine then began to research and become obsessed with this style of architecture and the architects that designed this style of buildings.
The first thing that caught my attention was the bright colours the interesting shapes and the way they captured my attention each building was interesting and unique.
My sculptures are not designed in a way that they look like a specific building, as an artist I take influences from these building and apply them to my work. I try to use the same principles that the architects used when designing these building, like the use of geometric shapes, bold colours, sweeping curves, and make the sculpture look as if it is defying gravity, my work is made with the intention of catching people’s attention and drawing people closer.”
