Shaun Ferguson artist - welcome to my web site. Visit new work, galleries, biography, exhibitions, paintings and purchase information, contact via the contact page. Based in Brighton UK, showing at Fairfax galleries in London, Brighton.

A graduate from the Royal Academy Schools and previous outright winner of the Discerning Eye, 'New Discovery Award' (at the time the largest financial award bestowed on any artists in an open competition in the UK) Shaun's work has been praised by critics and is held in major private and public collections around the world.

'Capturing people in quiet moment of reverie and achieving a balance between paint and subject matter are my aims with the paintings. To both represent and give some inner life to a figure is a compelling and often elusive challenge'.

‘The majority of Shaun Ferguson’s wonderfully atmospheric and sensitively expressed paintings are inspired by the figure, and usually this is the figure caught in a quiet, contemplative mood. His work involves an intriguing balance between subject matter, painterly considerations and interpretation, offering challenges and qualities that lift it well beyond straightforward portraiture, which in fact is never his objective. Interestingly, although he quite often adopts the conventional head and shoulders ‘portrait’ composition for his figure subjects, in seeking a more individual, painterly result he instils in the work a strong sense of energy and tension’.
