We are delighted to welcome Scott Tetlow to our portfolio of artists and it is a privilege to support his artistic journey... Enjoy Scott's debut collection.
Born in Rochdale in 1969, Scott developed a passion for art as a young boy. During his late teens, Scott spent his free time sketching punks and designing album covers. It was this body of work that earned him a place at Cheltenham University, where he gained his fine art degree.
"Each time I pick up my tools, I am running out onto a tightrope – I can’t stop. I have to keep going to get to the other side. There is no time to question myself or correct mistakes because I have to get the marks down with confidence. I don’t get a second chance. I can’t rework it; every mark has to flow out of me to give the figure movement. If I haven’t studied the lines, if I don’t fully understand them the drawing just won’t work. Every single line on each of my drawings is inspired by a living object, the result being that every line has the energy of a living thing."
