Gubbay qualified as an interior designer in 1971 and later worked as a graphic designer in the capital. He went on to follow his heart though, becoming a full time artist working in a variety of mediums before settling on acrylic to achieve his strong signature style with vibrant colours.
He has travelled extensively during his lifetime, living in Sydney for almost two years and marrying his New-Zealand born wife along the way. He has enjoyed numerous sell-out solo exhibitions as well as becoming a regular at major art fairs worldwide.
Gubbay’s inspiration is often derived from views along the Thames in Central London, which he translates in his own unique way, using a palette knife 95% of the time. Stunning large panels of colour blend recognisable architectural vistas with abstract skies and billowing masses, to draw the viewer deeper in to each piece released from his studio.
