Stephen Ledwidge is an illustrator based in the UK. In that he is a primarily figurative illustrator who actually models and renders his figures in paint, he seems to be somewhat of a wonderful anomaly. Ledwidge’s paintings are full of the most perfectly awkward figures (think folk art meets Balthus). The depth of his rich skin tones draw you in immediately. He combines these figures with beautiful painterly, graphic solutions.
