Steve Bowden artwork for sale and artist biography
Steve Bowden's distinctive and vibrant coastal scenes have a whimsical charm which encourages the viewer to step into each engaging scene and create their own narrative.
The romance of the sea, the safety of the harbours and the long reflections produce a wonderful feeling of calm which has enchanted art lovers across the UK.
Rather than painting what he sees in... front of him, locations are used simply for inspiration and as a reference point to allow him to create an essence and a feeling of place which chimes with his feelings at the time of visiting. He has a particular affinity for the Devon and Cornwall coast.
His images are loose and painterly in execution, and he constantly utilises new media, styles and techniques to keep his work fresh.
A self taught artist, he has a background in graphic design which has given him a unique understanding of the relationship between colour and emotion. He is now represented by many galleries and in 2018 became a finalist in Devon Life's 'Landscape artist of the year'.
