PRESS

“I find a peace and serenity in art that I have never known before. Most of my portraits feature artists and performers I have had the privilege of working with and that have been of inspiration to me. My art is a painted biography of my musical life, one I can never hope to finish, but what a joy it is to engage in.

I enjoy working in black and white, giving my art a bit of stage drama and allowing me to play with the shadows, while occasionally adding a little splash of color. My work, I hope, communicates the close working relationship I have with many of the subjects I paint.” — Gilson



"he's becoming increasingly renowned for his paintings"
— Richard Gunn, The Moment


"The mainly black and white music-themed portraits, along with some very personal sketches by Lavis, have become much sought after by tastemakers and those in the art and music circles in the UK. Best known as the versatile drummer with Jools Holland’s Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, Lavis is now shining the spotlight on his second career as an artist, after enjoying acclaim as one of the most sought-after drummers in the UK over the last 40 years." — Antiques and the Arts Weekly
