Gareb Shamus

(New York 12/23/1968 -)


Gareb Shamus is an American contemporary painter. Gareb is a very positive and optimistic person, and it’s evident in his paintings through his use of colors and designs.

Mr. Shamus sees no boundaries between art, business, and cultural connecting. His success as the founder of Comic-Con and publisher of Wizard magazine transformed the superhero genre worldwide. This global phenomenon taught him to trust his instincts and to forge ahead where others may be intimidated.

His paintings are noted for breaking the ‘3rd wall’ with their three-dimensional textures and use of a proprietary painting technique designed and developed to provoke conversation by reaching out to the casual viewer.


His artwork is currently on display in Los Angeles, Toronto, and New York City. Gareb recently showed at the private executive CORE: Club in NYC and is based in Chelsea, New York.
