Tom Stevenson

Tom Stevenson was born in 1984 and is based in Devon where he works from life to create paintings that follow a path between figurative and abstract styles to explain the light and colour of his surroundings.

Tom is drawn to subjects such as the coast, figures and the dramatic skies seen over the surrounding countryside. Away from home, Tom frequently paints the architecture and busy streets of London and abroad.

In his paintings Tom relies upon the uncontrollability of oil as a medium to build a fresh and organic surface. His work is underpinned by a strong composition and is often constructed around a simple compositional idea or collection of colours which form the starting point and focus of the painting.
