Greg Mason Artist


Greg’s work seeks to capture a sense of energy or a nuance of relationship between light, colour and texture, creating atmospheric works that are visually and technically striking whilst holding a deeper narrative. 


Greg studied illustration at St Martins School of Art and worked as an editorial illustrator in London in the 1980s before swapping this for a career in the fashion industry - travelling the world as an art director and working with some of the worlds top beauty brands. 

Today, Greg is a member of the prestigious Royal Institute of Oil Painters in the UK and is also the Professional Oil Painting Ambassador for Cass Art. With appearances on Sky Arts Portrait and Landscape Artist of the Year TV shows – where he was a finalist - he is well known throughout the UK and abroad. He is an author and coach, contributing to various artists magazines, and hosts creative retreat workshops in Mallorca where he has a studio and gallery.

His work is held in collections around the world and exhibited in galleries in the UK and Spain.
