Scott Bridgwood is a figurative painter, based in Leicester. He graduated from Chelsea Art College in Fine Art Painting in 1991. After exhibiting around London, at a range of venues including The ICA and Westminster Gallery, he moved to Rome, where he learnt to cook spaghetti carbonara and drive on the wrong side of the road. He painted and taught at the BCI (British Cultural Institute) for 8 years and is responsible for many of the murals and signs around the Italian capital.

Over the last few years, he has exhibited and sold widely across the Midlands and won various prizes, including the prestigious Windsor and Newton, Patchings and Sock Gallery, among others. His work has been featured by the Guardian, commissioned by national, Artist magazine, and widely published. Scott currently also teaches life drawing at Attenborough Arts Centre, University of Leicester.

“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.”
