Artist Profile: Gabe Gault

Inside the mind of one of Cali’s illest artist

Los Angeles artist Gabe Gault has captured the imagination of fans everywhere with his combination of realistic portraits and elaborate designs. The Andy Warhol fan’s work shows traces of his idol, as the subject of his art is often popular images of influencers and icons. Gault’s art has the potential to be iconic in his own right and if his persona and fashion is any indication, he knows it. We tracked him down to hear his take on his work, and the art industry as a whole.


Were you surrounded by the arts at an early age or did you pick it up on your own?

Growing up in Venice Beach, California, I was surrounded by artists and crazy murals everyday. I’ve been creating my whole life really, but didn’t get serious about it till after college where I pursued the fine arts.

What separates you from the rest of the amazing artist out there?

What makes me different from other artist is my blend of simplicity and complexity within each piece. Realistic portraits are a passion for me, but I also have a background in graphic design. Besides my work, my style and fashion let me express myself as an artist.

How do you feel about the art industry as a whole? What would you change about it if you could?

The art industry is a weird place right now- social media has changed how artists think and act- for better or for worst. Working with galleries is no longer mandatory; with places like Instagram and other social media outlets, there are so many ways to show and sell your work. It’s a great weird time to have this career.

What’s your personal  favorite piece? Who’s your fave artist?

Strangely enough, I don’t have a favorite piece or one singular favorite artist- It’s a bit cliche but I do look up to Andy Warhol and his career and design choices. Also Shepard Fairey of course.

What are your dreams and goals going forward?

My dream is to work with big companies and galleries, to travel the world and show my work to the masses. To give back and contribute to the city I grew up in and pave the way for other artists one day.
