The artist has developed slowly over the years stating; '' I am glad I wasn't one of these spoilt brat artists who got shows at top galleries at the age of 26... I exhibited at some galleries when I was in my 20's and managed to sell some work''. '' I think I've allways been an ' imagemonger', content to do what I want to do, regardless of fashion''. I don't care if my work at any one time is commercial or just visionary. .. I don't care what people think or don't think of my work.. I am content that I am, and allways have been sincere to my own inner vision. I don't mean that in an arrogant way, I just mean that I really don't care if people regard me as good, bad or mediocre.'' The artist has worked in the fields of illustration; and in the 1990's produced a series of cartoons for Psychic News. He has also worked as what has become popularly known as a Psychic Artist, or Spirit portraitist. In the late 1990's he demonstrated a type of ' mediumship of the pencil ' in venues around Britian. He would sit facing away from the audience, whilst engaging a psychic automatism he would draw portraits of people who were later recognised as the dead relatives of members of the audience. '' I think there is a connection between my 'psychic art', or 'spirit drawings', and my automatic drawings.Visit www.garyjcampbell.co.uk
