Stephen Shaw is a watercolour artist, based in Belfast.  His work is highly detailed, producing a photo realistic impression while still retaining the painterly qualities and vision of the artist.  The paintings are alive with colour and detail and generally focus on that which is generally perceived as drab, decaying or overlooked.

Stephen explains his art, saying  “Although important elements, the work is not merely an exercise in nostalgia or historic documentation, but also, hopefully, a fresh way of looking at ‘everyday’ places. Nothing is ‘normal’, everything is unique. Something of interest and beauty can be found almost anywhere.”

All artworks are available to buy. You can also buy art from this exhibition through the Own Art scheme which gives you an interest-free loan over 10 months (and you still get to take the art home immediately the exhibition ends).
