About the Artist
Gary Armer is a realist painter of portraits, landscapes and still life who lives and works in rural 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.
Alongside these projects the artist undertakes a variety of portrait commissions ranging from children, paintings of couples and family portraits through to formal commissions for weddings, the military and High Sheriffs.
