Steven Scholes

Steven Scholes captures with great effect a recognisable local History in his paintings. He creates vivid street scenes, enhanced with spectacular light effects; bringing together movement and life from this bygone age.

Steven Scholes is a professional Lancashire artist, born in 1952.

He has been painting from an early age, winning his first award at the age of five. His talent was recognised when in 1974 he was the winner of the Manchester Evening News Art Competition. This was a competition open to professional artists – as well as amateurs. From this, demand for his work increased so much that Steven became a professional artist in 1978.

Steven’s iconic style was greatly influenced by his grandfather, with whom he used to travel around the city throughout his childhood, appreciating the interesting details of the Victorian and Edwardian Architecture. Steven has followed these experiences as an inspiration to capture with great effect a recognisable local History in his work, creating vivid street scenes enhanced with spectacular light effects, bringing together movement and life from this bygone age.

The keen eye will notice that it is regularly 4.05pm in Steven’s paintings, this is not only due to the fact that Steven likes to evoke winter’s evening rush, but also pays homage to Steven’s own life; 4.05pm was a time when walking home from school Steven had time to day-dream, to free his artistic mind from the rigidity of school life. He remembers the time fondly, and cites it as one of the contributing factors to him becoming an artist.

We have exhibited Steven’s paintings here at the Unicorn Gallery for over 30 years, during this time Steven Scholes has held numerous sell-out, one-man exhibitions with us, as well as providing us with a stunning continuous display.

Steven Scholes is greatly sought after by galleries throughout the country, as well as many private collectors.
