For the past five years, Alex Dewars has painted for commission, pleasure, and dedication to his art. Since graduating in 2003 from Duncan of Jordanstone School of Art, he has – quite unusually for an artist of his generation – been able to work largely unsubsidised for the majority of his career. He is building a strong following online and in the UK, with his work shown at the Leith Gallery, the Affordable Art Fair, and several Art Exposure shows.
His work carries a sense of beauty and melancholy, along with the ethereal passion of his surroundings. Choosing figure painting as his primary medium, Alex is not out to shock or be “revolutionary”; his work speaks for itself – moving, thought-provoking insights into behaviours and relationships through a sideways glance, clasp of hands, or bow of head. He understands body politics and what we reveal about ourselves subconsciously.
