Steven Bewsher

Steven Bewsher is one of the Northern School’s exciting new generation. Born in Manchester in 1964, he graduated from Manchester and Wolverhampton and has exhibited widely.

In 1995 he exhibited at the Mall Gallery in London after taking part in the Discerning Eye Competition. In the same year he held his first one man show in Knutsford to great acclaim. This led the way for further one man shows and groups show around the country, most recently at Bath.

Steven’s work concerns the effects of light and shade on the landscape and the urban scene, capturing the changing colours and luminosity of the seasons and the texture of the built environment. Reminiscent of David Tress, his painting are vigorous but painterly, showing clearly the process of his knife-work.

His subject matter is varied from landscape to demolition, but all painted with energy and feeling for the paint.

His work has been featured in ‘The Art Magazine’, and ‘Artist and Illustrator’ and Cheshire Today and he has contributed to several tuition books.
