ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Stephen Rew is an artist based in Wales. Whilst studying for an arts degree at Swansea University he spent time studying animals in the wild in India, the Middle East and Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal and it was there, in Africa, that long-term objectives to combine artistic practices with a love and respect for wildlife began to emerge. Stephen is creative yet practical and his success with his artworks lies in his ability to be broadminded with his tools, palette, and concepts. Stephen brings the wild to life with his bronze sculptures and coffee and ink paintings of the animal world. Stephen was also awarded the coveted title of Wildlife Artist of the Year 2019 by the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation for his spectacular wall-mounted Octopus “Writhe”.

As well as his renowned sculptures and paintings Stephen has studied the technique and history of forging Damascus steel under the tuition of a master blacksmith in London. Following a trip to India in 2012 Stephen began to expand his knowledge and experience of the materials, processes and possibilities working alongside craftsmen in Rajasthan, India.

He works largely on commission and exhibits in the UK, Middle East, USA, and Channel Islands.

Stephen dedicates a large portion of his time to working near wildlife, where his inspiration is largely derived. He works with conservation charities in a bid to “do his bit” and help animals in the natural world.
