Scott Bridgwood developed his specialisation in painting the figure in his BA in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art. He worked in Rome for eight years as a mural and portrait artist and taught at the British Cultural Institute in Rome. He is a full-time professional artist and undertakes portrait commissions and divides his time between studios in Leicester and Cheshire.
“My work is mostly figurative. I find the figure intriguing - very familiar, yet enormously complex. The human body is not only immensely symbolic, but acts as a wonderful vehicle of light. In fact, in my own work rather than commission I am relatively uninterested in the sitter's character; instead I am concerned with light and the depiction of the physicality of the body.”
