Gavin Worth is a self taught artist who was born in Zimbabwe, Africa in 1981 and grew up in Las Cruces, New Mexico. He graduated with a degree in Acting, and after college, worked as an actor and musician for the Santa Fe Shakespeare Festival, the San Francisco Shakespeare Festival, and the California Shakespeare Theater. Gavin has had a lifelong passion for drawing, painting, and sculpture since he first saw Michelangelo’s “Head of Leda” in a book in the library.
His work was commissioned by Tiffany & Co to make sculptures for their Valentine’s Day window displays globally. Gavin’s work in sculpture and education also led him to be a finalist for the 2014 TED Fellowship. Ralph Lauren asked him to brainstorm modern, engaging, and minimal sculptural jewelry displays for their stores.
