Gary Phillips has made a commitment to working with found and recycled objects, transforming them into new and beautiful objects. As an artist and urban archeologist, his pieces can reflect over 1,000 years of London history; from Roman occupation through the great plagues and fires that have blighted London, through empire building and brisk commerce, right up to the present day. Whether working with objects directly or incorporating them more subtly as textures and tones to paintings, Gary's pieces tell stories that are both seen and unseen.
Gary was born and raised in Stepney in London's East End; his family history can be traced back for at least 200 hundred years in London, probably longer. Over the past several years Gary has had his work exhibited both in London and in New York City. He has conducted public art workshops and given talks about his work, and his work has been featured in several publications and websites.
Featured Artist in Period Living Magazine as well as a number of art and lifestyle websites, including, The Londonist and BoingBoing.
