BIO: Stephen Brown
Stephen Brown was born in Coleraine and has been drawing and painting from an early age. His artistic career began in illustration, designing covers and illustrating books for Mercier Press (Cork,) Smurfit Publications (Dublin), Crescent Moon and Cassell Publications in London. Brown has always been a dedicated painter and has been painting professionally in oils for many years. His inspiration stems mainly from his love of the ‘Pre-Raphaelites’ and ‘Art Nouveau’, fused with his passion for mythology and legend. The power of the written word and music have also played an integral role in the artist’s creative process. Considering himself to be first and foremost a ‘figurative artist’ he portrays the human form as an object of beauty and an instrument to inspire empathy and emotion from the viewer.His work has been recognised and collected by many renowned individuals from Phillidelphia, New York, London and Dublin. The singers Kate Bush and Brian Kennedy are both admirers and owners of his work.
