Stephen Doig is an artist of considerable talent. Born in Oxford, England in 1964, his encounter with art began at an early age - pencil drawings and colour sketches were the foundation for the excellent work he produces today.
A talented draughtsman, Doig''s work centered upon pencil sketching, however, the confidence to add colour in the form of pastel has transformed his drawings to highly finished and and accomplished paintings, combining accuracy with depth and an essential atmosphere.
Stephen Doig won the Fine Art Trade Guild''s "Best Artist of the Year" in 1997. His portrayals of sport have earned him a reputation as the country''s best contemporary sporting artist, whilst his latest series entitled "Legends of Rock" has drawn praise for such unusual and evocative portrayals.
