Gary Hogben

Gary Hogben, it is an artist living in Kent, who has always been interested in art since an early age. He started off by doing pencil sketches of animals, and progressed onto watercolours, giving these away to members of my family.

His first oil painting was done when he was 17, the earliest painting represented on this site is a copy of Metamorphosis of Narcissus by Salvador Dali, which I did in 1985, and it took six weeks!

After 2009 he had his first experience with spray after a visit to a street art exhibition and he started to experiment with stencils and spray-paint. Progressing onto collage work!
The result over the last few years is over 150 artworks, including quite a few commissions. He has sold internationally to America, Canada, New Zealand, Germany, Italy and Switzerland.
