Biography
Rowan Newton is a painter from South London. Growing up in metropolitan Brixton, surrounded by graffiti, Rowan was drawn to bold and vibrant imagery from an early age. His childhood appreciation for the street artist’s ability to transform unlikely spaces into pieces of art, echoes in his work today. Rowan’s style reflects the dichotomies of the inner-city landscape. Using spray and oil paint, he creates pieces that are gritty, provocative, and full of character, with his tenacious use of bright colours. Rowan paints that which he finds beautiful, and so he often captures the confidence of women with equally confident brush strokes, but does not lose the delicateness of their femininity. His work is full of texture with splatter, drips, and layering complimenting the depth of his artistic subjects. Rowan’s process is a re-imagining of beauty and a representation of it in a whole new way. Since graduating from university in 2004, Rowan’s work has been in various exhibitions and art fairs in the UK including the ART15, London Art Fair, Battersea Affordable Art Fair, and the Original Art Fair. His work has also shown internationally, from New York to Amsterdam to Shanghai as well as the House of Commons here in London. He has been featured on respected blogs/websites such as Empty Kingdom, Maestro Knows, and Zeutch; and his work has graced the cover of Diplomat Magazine and the pages of the Great Big Book of Fashion Illustration. Rowan Newton continues to solidify his growing reputation, and 2015 will see him exhibiting for the first time at London prestigious art fair ART15. He will also be showing at Stroke Art Fair in Munich, Hamburg Affordable Art Fair and a group exhibition at Pretty Portal in Düsseldorf.
