Who am I?
I’m a UK artist (based in Gloucestershire) selling my original art, and doing commissions, all over the world. I hand deliver all of my art in the UK (because I believe in personal service); I also ship to 42 other countries.
Swarez isn’t my real name but it’s a nickname that seemed to fit really well many years ago so I kept it. I have NO art training and am 100% self-taught.
Oh, and just 10 short years ago I was delivering parcels for a living. Just goes to show what you can do with a small idea and big dreams. Learn about my back story.
What I do
I create one-off original paintings; lovingly crafted, exquisitely detailed and filled with an honesty rarely seen in today’s disposable marketplace. Originals are never replicated and I don’t do prints of anything. What you see is exactly what you get. Every paint stroke, every photograph and every last bit of this website is done by me.
Thankfully now though I employ the services of my best friend Adrian who works alongside me taking care of material technologies, quality control and installation logistics. I still make the tea though.
How I do it
I work very hard. Every day in fact. You cannot achieve something great if you sit on your arse all day waiting for it to happen. This is the reason I am here. I found the one thing I am good at and my reputation is growing rapidly because of it.
My energy and determination is relentless and I never settle for second best. When you buy into my art you get the whole experience, not some corporate dick worrying about his commission.
I’m doing things differently. I built my own art gallery with my own bare hands and it only has my art hanging in it. The space is brilliant; please come visit when you’re over this way next.
