Stephen Campbell is one of a new wave of artists currently generating lots of interest and praise within the art world. At barely 27 years of age, his works are already in high demand across the country, and can sell for thousands of pounds.
Stephen is unique because he creates his own paint from high quality pigments, oils resins and waxes in order to be as environmentally friendly as possible. His distinctive work is so exciting as the distorted images he paints are not derived from a lens, but from his own imagination. He can often be found sitting in a café on King Street, or stood on the streets of Manchester painting well known locations in his own unique style. His work is often finished in his studio, where he can take the time to build upon layers of glazes using different materials in order to achieve the finished painting..
Stephens work sold out in our recent Northern Art Past and Present show at Clark Art Gallery in Hale. He recently visited the gallery to drop off four new small paintings he had finished earlier in the day. The work stirred up so much interest that three had been sold after only a few hours, before they had even been framed and whilst the paint was still drying on the canvas.
Stephen Campbell is a young artist with a great future ahead of him and is already building a strong following amongst collectors.
