Gustavius Payne is a Welsh figurative artist. Work available at the Ffin-Y-Parc,  Kooywood Gallery and Fountain Fine Art. Artwork available throughout the year.

Elected to the Welsh Group in 2013 (and chair in 2018), his figurative paintings use nature, animals, birds and trees, alongside hoodies, mobile phones, religious iconography and other human constructs. His diverse imagery draws from mythology and folk-lore, alongside ecological and political concerns, drawing the viewer into a fascinating reflective world, set in the post-industrial Welsh Valleys.
