Garett Campbell-Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist, born in Vancouver, British Columbia. His art is provocative, engaging, and a feast for your eyes. Campbell-Wilson has had a passion for art from an early age and received formal training at the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University. Currently painting full-time in his studio, variety is vital in his creative process and he finds it essential to resist becoming restricted to one style or way of working. He prefers to paint large while developing multiple paintings at a time.
“I create with feeling and imagination to evolve as an artist. I relate a painting to a book with no ending. The story changes as we tap into our perception. Painting is where I cultivate my thoughts, experiences, and dreams into meditation. Art has become a personal ritual, a daily rite which leads me to study the world around me and increases my awareness of the universe.”– Garett Campbell-Wilson, 2009
A recurring theme in Gcamwil’s work revolves around diverse perceptions. He creates conversation pieces where viewers enter into dialogue sharing multiple perspectives. Gcamwil gains inspiration from nature, observation, and tapping into all the senses. Essentially, his vivid dreams are reinterpreted in his artwork. The connection of mind, body, and spirit is essential to his creative process.
“All we have to do is create.”– Garett Campbell-Wilson, 2022
