The renaissance of figurative art has a new protagonist in Brighton born, London based artist Steve Yeates. He explodes the concept of the traditional aesthetic by his innovative use of today’s waste paper into socially aware yet sensitive explorations of the human soul.
I have always drawn (I worked in engineering design) but after a serious illness in 2012 I decided to put some effort into creative drawing. I draw Edward Hopper influenced realist pictures. I have won some prizes here and there and had a picture in the 2015 RA Summer Exhibition.
