“My paintings are based upon an illusion, allowing me to blend past with present.”

Scottish artist Stuart regularly hits the headlines with his Pop Art paintings. Fusing cartoons with themes of idealism and consumerism, his multilayered artworks blend the past with the present.

Inspiration

Using subtle tones of paint, Stuart creates the illusion of transparency. The overall effect is similar to looking through a glass bottle, distorting the image and presenting a different version of the same subject. In turn, a far-fetched reality is created, highlighting the unrealistic expectations of today’s society.

As a former artist-in-residence at The Savoy in London, Stuart has also enjoyed successful exhibitions and commissions in New York and Hong Kong. He is an admirer of Old Masters such as Caravaggio and Hieronymus Bosch, but is particularly inspired by the leading founder of the Pop Art movement, Andy Warhol.

Stuart says: “Warhol’s views on mass consumerism and the way he translated these into his art is something I really relate to. I hope my art does something similar and stands the test of time.”
