Gary Goodman is a painter and poet. His imagery is resoundingly direct, unbothered by artistic self-consciousness and politeness; unrefined, unmannerly yet sensitive. He simply wishes to say ‘hello’ to the world as it passes him by.
He is a featured artist in books about Printmaking and Painting and has also appeared in various poetry anthologies.
For the past 23 years
He also organizes spoken word, music and performance events under the heading: Everybody’s Got To Be Somewhere.
He works from his shed at the end of the garden in Sussex.
