Stephen West

Elected RCA 2010

Stephen has lived and worked in mid-Wales for 30 years and exhibits widely as well as lecturing and leading workshops. He is a graduate of Berkshire College of Art in Reading and St Martins School of Art and the Royal College of Art in London.

Stephen uses drawing as a primary art form, he also makes sculpture in stone, clay and bronze. Marks – drawn, painted or chiselled – are his basic elements. He values the dynamism of mark-making in his approach to subjects which include the river and trees of his home, excited people meeting round a table and current news issues.
