"I make constructions, oil paintings and prints which reflect my interests in British art of the inter-war period, the Renaissance, the sea, and the unusual juxtapositions of Surrealism."
Steven Hubbard was born in London in 1954 and educated at Gloucester College of Art. After graduating he taught part-time for a period while devoting himself to his own work, developing first a distinguished practice as a portrait painter working mostly to commission and, subsequently, moving on to evolve his own distinctive genre combining painting with craft, which he considers his most rewarding activity. Hubbard was a finalist in the annual BP portrait exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. In 1989 he was short-listed as ‘best painter under 35’ by the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. Work of his was also selected for BP Award exhibitions in 1991 and 1993. Steven Hubbard has been represented by Francis Kyle Gallery since 1997 and has contributed to several of the Gallery’s theme exhibitions between 2005 and 2008. He has held one-man exhibitions there in 2000, 2003 and 2009.Steven Hubbard's prints reflect his interests in the sea, the applied arts and the literature of the inter-war years.
