About Nathan Gibbons
Unlike many successful artists Nathan Gibbons did not go to Art College. Instead, he learnt his trade the hard way, working the tough sea side resorts of the south coast as one of the last remaining great beach artists. This meant working fast under full public scrutiny, often completing three or four works in a single day.
He is the fourth generation of the Gibbons family to paint and sculpt, starting from his Great Grandfather. So, art truly flows through his veins. Having served this toughest of apprenticeships’ Nathan now works from his small studio in Berkshire where he specialises in creating single large, realistic statement pieces in oils over several months.
His subjects and styles cover the whole spectrum from abstraction and knife-work, through impressionist landscapes, people and places to incredible realist paintings of dancers. He is a keen and accomplished dancer and so understands and translates the rhythm, movement and passion of dance to the canvas as though he were dancing it himself.
