Steven Campbell Paintings

Steven Campbell 1953-2007

Steven Campbell, the son of a steelworker and a steelworker himself before attending Glasgow School of Art, exploded onto the Scottish art scene in 1982 in the Scottish Arts Council exhibition ‘Scottish Art Now’. He soon became the driving force behind the group of painters (including Howson) known as the new ‘Glasgow Boys’, whose large-scale, figurative paintings marked a renaissance in painting and Glasgow in particular as a cultural centre. By the mid-1980s, Campbell’s international reputation was established with his move to New York.
