Stephen Wild, Oldham
Stephen Wild was born in 1955 in Oldham, Lancs. His early years evidenced an innate talent for painting and drawing, though he received no formal art training . At about the age of thirty, he revived his early interest on painting and he gained a lot of experience under the tutelage of one of the North-West’s best professional painters ,John McCombs, a well known and excellent tutor.
The subjects favoured by Stephen are landscapes and figurative, he treats these with flat colour and precise linear brushwork. His approach to the subjects is unique and the results are cleverly observed and always very sympathetic.
