From small sketches through to accomplished large-scale drawings, drawing from observation has always been central to Geraint’s practice. Often combining artistic disciplines, his themes are built around the central concern of the individual’s experience, in both the political and physical geography of place. Through drawing, painting, installation and more recently soundscapes, Geraint reimagines these moments in the studio.
Following graduation from Swansea Metropolitan University in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art; Geraint became closely involved with the South Wales art scene, most notably with the former TactileBosch gallery and studios in Cardiff.
His first solo exhibition ‘Landscape of First World Problems’ toured from Oriel Q in Narberth to ArcadeCardiff in 2014. That same year, Geraint relocated to London where he had gained a place to study on The Drawing Year. Upon graduation in 2015 he was awarded the Director’s Prize.
His most recent body work explored edgelands and celebrated the sensations and memories conjured by these landscapes. The work was exhibited in a major solo exhibition entitled 'Edgeland' at Penarth Pier Pavilion back in South Wales in 2016. Shortly after, Geraint was awarded the Richard Ford Award, which allowed him 2 months to study the paintings at the Prado Museum in Madrid. Geraint is currently developing new work and continues to live, work and teach in London.
