Clint Eastwood by Steve Coughlin

A quarter of a century spent in theatre design and stage scene creation is evident in the evocative work of Suffolk artist Steve Coughlin.

Affordable online art gallery, Art Under a Monkey, introduces distintive and exciting contemporary paintings from artist Steve Coughlin.

A quarter of a century spent in theatre design and stage scene creation is evident in the evocative work of Suffolk artist Steve Coughlin. Though inspired by iconic celebrity, Coughlin tries to present more thoughtful and evocative images of the individual, allowing the more human side of the person to emerge. His bold, graphic, but analytical style delivers a level of expression, whether a grimly determined Clint Eastwood or a thoughtful Jimi Hendrix, that is infrequently seen in the normal run of celebrity portraiture.

Much of the style of Coughlin’s other work, in particular his barbed wire and padlock series, has also been influenced by a background in scene painting. Using texturing techniques that Coughlin developed and honed while creating backdrops for stage and film productions, the highly individual and unique speckled effect is achieved through a combination of classic painting style and splattering of paints onto the canvas.
