Gavin Rogers is a visual artist based in Birmingham. His practice is situated across a range of media, but is currently exploring issue-based sculptures – large moving sculptures that raise awareness of important social and public issues. In the past year Gavin has made alcoholic elephants float on canals, migrant storks nest on buildings, and capitalist eels that cruise across the West Midlands on wheels. Gavin has presented work at a number of international venues including the NGA Canberra, LOFT Melbourne, Coventry Biennial of Contemporary Art, TATE Liverpool as well as many other arts venues in the Midlands, UK.
Alongside his artistic practice, Gavin runs workshops, community art sessions, and teaches both young and adult learners. He was the curator of studio education for USA to UK Creative Exchange Fulbright Scholars, a co-ordinator of National Art Saturday Club for Nottingham, and is currently teaching modules themed around Public Art at the Wolverhampton School of Art. Gavin acts as an associate and lead artist for Bertz Associates in Birmingham.
