Art for Landscape and Architecture

Are you looking for an experienced artist who can deliver your site specific art project smoothly from initial concept to final polish?

I have over 30 years experience in delivering successful murals and mosaics for landscape and architecture.

“...exemplary in exhibiting his unique abilities and talents which have made him a cornerstone to the contemporary artform.”
Ghassan Khayyat – Mosaico Blog

“…in case you are a mosaic newbie, then let me just say that his public art works once seen are never forgotten. They range from the boldly iconic to the quietly nonconformist taking in courage, energy, delight and technical wizardry along the way.”
Helen Miles – Helen Miles Mosaic Blog

Drostle Public Arts aim to offer a full professional service with the highest level of design and craftsmanship from your first steps in commissioning an artwork to the final polish and handover.

A complete service

A complete service

Design - Gary is able to offer a creative and tailored design solution.

Fabrication - Mosaics are constructed off-site in Gary's London studio to minimise disruption to the site.

Installation - Works are installed by Gary and his team ensuring the same care from beginning to end for your commission.



We use a range of high quality materials including: hand made Venetian Glass Smalti; natural stone and marble; tough French Unglazed Porcelain.



Works can be created on or off site to minimise disruption. We cut our tesserae by hand and lay each one individually.



We are proud of our full installation service, showing the same attention to detail and craftsmanship as goes into the making of your mosaic.



Mosaics made off-site are carefully packed in sections and shipped to their destination around the world.



Thirty years experience means that you can trust us to provide expert advice and support throughout the commissioning process.



Our professional practice is supported by full technical data, method statements, health and safety, environmental and equality policies.
