Tony Bevan
British, b. 1951
Follow

Tony Bevan paints expressive, unsettling portraits that recall the work of Lucian Freud, Frank Auerbach, and Leon Kossoff. Since the 1980s, Bevan has been producing unconventional self-portraits that explore physical transformation as a metaphor for feelings and other aspects of psychological and emotional life. Using primarily charcoal and acrylics, Bevan works directly on canvas that he lays on his studio floor. Bevan strives to prove in his work that there is more to portraiture than capturing a physical likeness.
