About Arth Lawr
Arth lives in Plymouth, a waterfront city surrounded by the ragged beauty of Dartmoor. For as long as he can remember Arth has been drawn to naive art with it's bold use of colour, flat composition and simple shapes.
Arth paints a world that is filled with happiness and humour. He is passionate about human and animal rights and he hopes that his art reflects the increasing social awareness of how life is more colouful and vibrant when people and animals are respected.
Arth has attracted an international audience in his first few years of exhibiting. He has collectors across the UK as well as the USA, Spain and Australia.
Arth has supported a number of charity events, including the famous St Ives Rotary Club annual art sale and he has taken part in the St Lukes Elmer's Big Parade.
Arth has appeared on TV BBC Spotlight and is featured regularly in Plymouth Magazine, Plymouth Evening Herald and Western Morning News.
Arth cites his inpirational artists as being Brian Pollard, Jane Wooster-Scott, Edward Bawden, Charles Wysocki, Martin Leman, Grandma Moses and Henri Rousseau.
