L. E. Gav Thorpe is a professional contemporary English artist specialising in creating paintings of the legs and feet. He has created artworks for collectors in France, England, USA and Germany and has appeared in the Daily Mirror and on News10NBC and BBC TV and Radio.

His designs have been used in support of many charities internationally, including Visual AIDS and Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation. To date, he has received both invitations to and has exhibited in both major and private galleries throughout Europe and the US.

He has worked with professional photographers and has created imagery for art festivals in Torun, Poland and in his hometown of Lewes. Plus, he is also a standing member of the Lewes district’s visual arts association.

L. E. Gav Thorpe’s artworks are bold in colour and humorous and they all orientate around the subject of the legs, feet and shoes; however he has gained far more popularity for including in his paintings a small man, very often to be found in difficult or comedic situation.

He currently lives with his family in the historic town of Lewes in Sussex, England.
