Scott Tetlow

Born in Rochdale in 1969, Scott developed a passion for art as a young boy. During his late teens, whilst roadying for punk bands, Scott spent his free time sketching punks and designing album covers. It was this body of work that earned him a place at Cheltenham University, where he gained his fine art degree. Read more
In 2002, his much-loved studio burnt to the ground and he lost everything. Unable to continue both practically and emotionally, Scott threw himself into teaching, believing that his art career was now just part of his past.

In 2011, Scott moved his family to Verona and, ironically, moved into an apartment directly above an art shop. Feeling inspired to pick up his brushes again, he began to draw the stunning architecture.

With his passion rekindled, he returned to England and built a studio in his garden. He hasn't stopped painting since.

"Somewhere along my path I became engrossed in the need to convey movement, to create the illusion of life. Each time I pick up my tools, I am running out onto a tightrope – I can’t stop. I have to keep going to get to the other side. There is no time to question myself or correct mistakes because I have to get the marks down with confidence. Every mark has to flow out of me to give the figure movement. If I haven’t studied the lines, if I don’t fully understand them, the drawing just won’t work. Every single line on each of my drawings is inspired by a living object, the result being that every line has the energy of a living thing."
