Welcome to the world of Geoffs art, not your ordinary everyday acrylics.

A good painting to me,
is like a good friend.
It keeps you company,
comforts and inspires.

About Geoff Belshaw


Geoff Belshaw, born in the UK, trained in the north of England at Blackpool college of art. Studied airbrush and illustration, taught by two of Britons finest airbrush artists, Tom Eccles and Tom Liddle. He moved to the south west, Bristol where he worked in Studiovision as a commercial illustrator and was inspired by artists Stan Cook, Mike Barnfather and Terry Moss. He emigrated to Sydney in 1974 and continued his illustration work into his own advertising, graphic and web design agency...The Administry. Teamed up with, and worked along side artists Tony Simpson and well known water colour artist Graham Bryce, once head of Randwick Graphic Design Collage. After living on the Northern Beaches of Sydney for the last 30 years, he has spent time in Port Stephens but lives back on the beaches.

Geoffs contemporary styles suit contemporary house designs with their larger walls and greater use of space. The options have been the use of abstract paintings, a strategically placed splash of colour and sometimes minimalist work to satisfy the void of blank, white painted walls. For the adventurous, Geoffs approach has been dramatic and bold yet livable, a balance between Andy Warhol Campbell's soup and Jeffrey Smart, two influences that position Geoff's work perfectly. To create this, Geoff has combined all his skills of painting, colour, airbrush, pallet knife and perspective to achieve a unique surreal style of illustration work with detail and a technique that only comes with years of hard work, experience and a dedication of time.

He says that colour is most intense in the mid day sun but we have to squint and close it out, imagine being able to cope with that intense light and you must agree, that is what he has captured. His paintings are constructed to arrest and take a moment out of time to give the viewer a chance to re-live what would have just been a fleeting glimpse, he is allowing us the opportunity to take a little piece of that privilege home with us.  Enjoy...
