Artist Gary Hogben


Pop Art and Philatelics


Full time Artist , middle aged chap living in Great Yarmouth , Norfolk, I have always been interested in Art from an early age , and I started off doing pencil sketches of animals and progressed onto watercolors giving these away to members of my family.

My first oil painting was done when I was 17. One of my earliest painting Metamorphosis of Narcissus  by Salvador Dali was painted in 1985 and took six weeks to complete. After that I completed numerous impressionist paintings – If I liked it I painted it . Between 1996 and 2008 I didnt paint a thing only taking up the paint brush or in this case  a spray can . I started to experiment with stencils and spray paint and progressing onto postage stamps.with the result over the years of over 300 artworks ,including quite a few commissions . I have sold internationally to America,Canada,New Zealand,Germany,Austria, France, and Switzerland.

I have now started producing digital pieces using scanned  british stamps .

Some of my pieces have been featured in magazines,Vogue,2016.GQ in February and March 2016, House of Coco – Spring Edition ,Coach Magazine issue 23 .
