Gavin Perry



Born in 1971 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (United States)
Lives and works in Miami (United States)

Gavin Perry graduated from the Tyler School of Art at Temple University in Pennsylvania. His paintings, although created in Miami, recall the style of the Californian finish fetish artists of the 1960s, and introduce a formal, coloured and gleaming perfection, with the use of industrial materials taken out of their context, creating visual phenomena which change the paintings’ temporality. 

Focussed on the social opposition between the decorative aesthetics 
and customized cars, his work has been shown at the Contemporary Art Museum Houston (2013), Frost Art Museum in Miami (2012) and at the Art Basel art shows in Basel and in Miami Beach. 
He was shortlisted for the first edition of the Jean-Francois Prat Prize (2012) and won the Chestler Foundation Award, Miami (2001). 
He is represented by Galerie Sultana (Paris) and Barbara Davis Gallery (Houston).
