Scott Bridgwood developed his specialisation in painting the figure in his BA in Fine Art at Chelsea School of Art. He worked in Rome for eight years as a mural and portrait artist and taught at the British Cultural Institute in Rome.  He is a full-time professional artist and undertakes portrait commissions and divides his time between studios in Leicester and Cheshire.

“My work is mostly figurative. I find the figure intriguing - very familiar, yet enormously complex. The human body is not only immensely symbolic, but acts as a wonderful vehicle of light. In fact, in my own work rather than commission I am relatively uninterested in the sitter's character; instead I am concerned with light and the depiction of the physicality of the body.”

Scott Bridgwood's works are held in private collections in the UK and Italy and he regularly shows at Cank Street Gallery, Leicester, West End Gallery, Leicester and Lost Gallery in Aberdeen. He teaches courses at Attenborough Arts Centre in Leicester and at the Ten2 Gallery in Hinckley.  He also runs regular drop-in sessions in life drawing, still life and portrait painting in Oadby.
