The Artist

A bold, intriguing clash of contemporary photographic elements and traditional oil painting; Calum Stevenson’s work is instantly recognisable and his creations leave a lasting impact within the viewer’s mind.

Born in Falkirk, Stevenson graduated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in 2019. He then went on to graduate from the Glasgow School of Art with a MA in Fine Art Practice in 2020. Stevenson has been presented with numerous awards throughout the duration of his career thus far, including The Sandra McNeilance Prize for Drawing and Painting.

Stevenson’s creative process is unique in that his oil paintings begin as intricate digital collages, which are then reworked and evolved until he has reached the final, perfect iteration of his chosen compositions. These arrangements are then transformed into physical marvels as Stevenson translates each composition into a detailed oil painting on stretched canvas. Capturing a strong sense of movement and a bold intrigue, Stevenson’s artwork thrives in its complexity and the honed skill of its creator.

Our Commission

As a celebration of the city of Glasgow’s rich culture and the opening of Beresford Lounge in 2021, we asked Calum to create a series of truly unique paintings which reflect both Glasgow’s Art Deco heritage and the vision which encompasses Beresford Lounge itself. We desired something exciting, contemporary and complimentary to the modern energy of Beresford Lounge's interior design.

The Painting

Channeling both masculinity and breathtaking design, “City Essence” is symbolic of Glasgow’s beautiful art and culture, alongside its magnificent industrial achievements in the travel sector. The focal point of this decadent oil painting features a monochrome gentleman, boldened by striking sections of negative colouring and juxtaposed with delicate roses in the Art Nouveau style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

The pioneering nature of Mackintosh’s artwork provided a huge draw to the city of Glasgow, and added immensely to its reputation as home to the creative and innovative - a reputation that precedes itself even today. Stevenson expands on this theme through his representation of Glasgow's famed transport network, in the form of an abstract silhouette of a Glasgow bus - one of many hidden details within the composition of this extraordinary piece.
