A former student at Glasgow School of Art Steven had an accomplished career in the music industry before returning to his first love, painting. He has since become a very successful artist and his work is held in private collections in the UK, Europe, Scandinavia and Canada. His work has won numerous awards and he was shortlisted for the prestigious Aspect prize in 2011.
Estelle Lovatt, the art critic featured on the New Radio 2 Arts Show with Claudia Winkleman described his work as “like revisiting Vermeer in the Dutch Golden Age of painterly skill against the Colour Field of Rothko, all intertwined with an aesthetic twist of contemporary, complex-simplicity. Lindsay using his paintbrush eloquently, capturing painterly conversations between the art history giants of a bygone age and a bygone art.”
He lives and works in Glasgow.
