Stevie Nicholson

Admired from afar, his oil on canvas pieces may resemble a traditional painting, but up close the viewer is overwhelmed by abstract block markings, drips and colour – which give his work a pixelated effect.
Using the basic framework of facial features to build a base, Stevie uses this space as a playground for the application of paint. He adds spontaneous details using instruments he finds around his studio, giving each artwork a unique texture.
The Scottish artist, who hails from Clydebank, is inspired by painters like Andrew Salgado and Lionel Smit.
Stevie says: “I look for an emotional response in every painting, and I want the viewer to ask questions. My focus is to find something captivating and unique by pushing the boundaries of portraiture.”
