Gareb Shamus is an American contemporary painter and part of New York’s emerging Connectivism movement. He is the founder of Wizard World, the country's largest producer of Comic Cons. Gareb started and published, for over twenty years, Wizard, ToyFare, InQuest Gamer, Anime Insider and Toy Wishes, the award winning magazines that transformed the superhero and character based genre worldwide.
Mr. Shamus paintings are noted for breaking the ‘3rd wall’ with their three-dimensional textures and use of a proprietary painting technique designed and developed to provoke conversation from the casual viewer.
His artwork is currently on display in galleries in Los Angeles and New York City; and he has exhibitions lined up over the coming twelve months in England, Italy, Germany and Asia. Gareb’s art was recently the focus of an article in Forbes as well as Art & Signature magazine.
