Gary Armer is a contemporary realist painter who lives and works in Lancashire, North West England.
His latest project is entitled Football is Still Life, where he explores the narratives and themes associated with football memorabilia and fan culture through realist still life paintings.
Gary has also recently collaborated with Farm Yard Ales on a project to create a painting for the new Blackpool F.C. inspired Seasiders Way lager ale hybrid.
Other recent bodies of work include Identity, a series of three portraits that explore themes of masculinity.
In 2017 Gary’s portrait Not a Penny More was exhibited in the National Open Art Exhibition in London and was voted into the Top 10 of the World Art Vote. The painting was then exhibited in the Football Is Art exhibition at the National Football Museum throughout the majority of 2019.
