Garry Hobbs completed a degree in constructed textile design at Middlesex University. His training as a textile designer transpires through out his work where he starts by searching for an image, a situation or a body that are striking and powerful enough to lead a story. Once Garry has selected his main character or image, he places all around it a series of other situations, objects, and people building the image up so that it tells a story.
Garry's greatest influence, to use his own words are 'a world where technology and chaos cause juxtapositions, impositions, coincidences and tableaux vivant ever more bizarre and strange. I paint and draw because I have to and hope in doing so others see the humour, the intrigue and the delights in the world I see and pass through.'
Garry has participated in numerous exhibitions including 'Not the Turner Prize' at The Mall Galleries and 'One man show' at Halesworth Gallery in 2004, Art in Mind at Brick Lane gallery in 2007, 'Have I got nudes got you' at Harleston Gallery in 2011. He is also a member of the Greyfrairs art space as well as Norfolk Contemporary Art Society.
