John-Paul Gibbs

  • Fine Art Graphics artist illustrator

I studied Fine Art at the University of the West of England I covered a range of subjects within the Fine Art field such as Film editing, Quark, Graphics in Photoshop, Performance, photomontage, photography, painting, sculpture and also Mixed media. I decided to forge a path in my earlier part of my art career making and producing fine art performances documented by hidden shallows productions on my youtube channel; proppe42. This led me to a curious investigative approach to Art direction which i semi undertook at Brighton Film school before dropping out and realising i actually wanted to sell my oil paintings full time.
