Ewie

Ewie was born in 1964 and lives in Northern England. “I've been producing homoerotic paintings and drawings since my late teens,” he says, “but it wasn't until about 2004 that I started selling them. I don't, in all honesty, consider myself an Artist-with-a-capital-A, not by any stretch of the imagination. I'm a picture-maker: my pictures are intended above all to be highly decorative - the reaction I most like to get is ‘Ooh that's lovely!’ rather than ‘I glean a great deal of intellectual satisfaction from your conception of space and subliminality’ or stuff like that. The closest I come to an ‘artistic vision’ is that I love bright vibrant colours, deep contrasts, black shadows, brilliant highlights – I suppose you could call this ‘drama’.”
