Boyd Gavin


Boyd Gavin received his BA from University of Santa Cruz, and his MA from California State University, Sacramento.

Gavin paints in a very straightforward manner, with a loos brushstroke and bright palette that lends itself well to painting small, easily recognizable objects such as crayons and marbles. He says “I am drawn to the quirky shorthand style of artists like Fairfield Porter or David Park, artists who seem to invest even the himeliest of subjects with an offhand grandeur.”

He has exhibited work in multiple shows at the John Natsoulas Gallery, Caldwell Synder in San Francisco, and has work in the permanent collection of The Crocker Museum in Sacramento, California.
