Calum Stevenson


Calum Stevenson is a Scottish painter who graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2019 and went on to be awarded a Masters in Fine Art from Glasgow School of Art in 2020. He was named SkyArts Portrait Artist of the Year 2021 winning a commission to paint the violinist Nicola Benedetti which hangs in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery, Edinburgh.

 His work incorporates figures in obscure environments largely inspired by the Scottish landscape and post-war British architecture. "I use painting to explore my connection to places and figures of my past. Growing up around Cumbernauld I always admired the town's brutalist architecture, my paintings often feature dream-like environments that play on Cumbernauld's original aim to be the city of the future."
