Steve Beadle (@stevebeadleart) is currently a York, U.K based artist originally from Hull.
I’ve spent time living in Hull, Germany, Leeds, Manchester and York in that order.
Studied BA Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University. My work during that time was concerned in the horrors of war imagery, street art and propaganda posters.
MA in Fine Art at York St John University. My research was around Psychogeography, abstract painting, sketchbooking and mapmaking and whether the act of walking can be considered an art form.
This time in academia left some lingering questions about how art should be taught. Most of what I have learned about ‘art’ has just come from a life long dedication to drawing.
Co-founder of the group Navigators Art and Performance.
Availible for commissions if the job is right. I’m mostly asked for traditional portrait work . If I can’t visit you in real life then it is important to have very good, well lit photographic reference to work from and I retain the right to refuse if I don’t think we’ll get a good piece out of it.
I have some prints and postcards availible on Etsy and if you see me at a market or show.
I’ll be listing some works for sale on this site with a price but many that do not have a price may still be availible for purchase or print so just shoot me a message if there’s something you like.
This site is very much an ongoing work in progress. I wanted my own little space that harks back to the old times of the internet. I’ve grown to dislike most of the modern social medias as platforms for sharing work. I see this as an interlinking ‘Digital garden’ to be tended to and added to over time rather than a polished piece. Posts without much written word may or may not be fleshed out over time..so bookmark and check back in every now and then.
