Gus Eagleton creates interpretations of reality and beauty within the urban landscape. With a selected colour palette and fluid lines, he manipulates light and shadow in an unrealistic and romantic way.
He paints with considered velocity and magnetism, yet simultaneously the pieces embody slowness, a dreamlike feel. Gus explores the diversity and intrigue of the characters he encounters and, as a true romantic indulges in the beauty and charisma of the people he paints.
He is compelled and influenced by the environment around him – the problematic high-rise development in the city, the gentrification in the suburbs, the fascinating abandoned industrial areas on the outskirts of town; these spaces are his subject matter and his canvas. Website
