Featured Artists 2021 - Stephen Bishop

Symonds & Sampson are continuing to feature artwork on the covers of their collective property auction catalogues during 2021. This beautiful oil on canvas by Stephen Bishop has been chosen for the catalogue for the auction on 22 October.

Stephen Bishop. 'Into the Light'

Stephen Bishop was born to be an artist; his mother certainly thought so, deciding upon the spelling of his name with a ‘ph’ rather than a ‘v’ as it looked more artistic as a signature. Graduating from the Berkshire College of Art & Design in 1984, Stephen held his first solo exhibition at the age of just 21. 1987 saw a move to Dorset, a place he’d grown to love during childhood holidays, and a move which enabled him to achieve his dream to ‘get under the skin of the natural world and share this powerful connection in an honest and visceral way through art’.

Online exhibitions are proving very popular and Stephen will be holding an online Studio Open in November 2021. His next Exhibition is a solo show at the wonderful Eype Centre for Arts near Bridport from 14 - 29 May 2022. 

For more details on these exhibitions and other updates see the news page at www.stephenbishop.co.uk where you can also view available paintings and join his mailing list for exclusive content, exhibition news and studio insights.
