Gareth grew up in the new city of Milton Keynes and studied Fine Art at Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic. His work spans drawing, sculpture, installation, exhibition making, writing and publishing.

In 2003, he organised the exhibition Helmut Jacoby: Milton Keynes Drawings, which looked at the politics of public space through the prism of the hand-drawn visualisations of the unbuilt city, and in 2011 he staged a solo exhibition at MK Gallery that explored how identity is constructed through architecture, advertising and art.

He received a Paul Hamlyn Award for Visual Arts in 2006, and the following year made a new edition of Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray for Four Corners Books. In 2012, he presented a 25-year survey of his work, Untitled Structure, at Raven Row, London. He is currently working towards a practice-based PhD at Kingston University, looking at how to fabricate the ideal city.
