The Living: Rick by Stephen D Bunting
The Living: Rick by Stephen D Bunting
The Living: Rick is an original painting by contemporary, fine artist Stephen D. Bunting. Painted onto canvas, the piece is signed by the artist.


Stephen D. Bunting is a contemporary fine artist, who works predominantly with oil on canvas. His work incorporates figures and faces, employing traditional methods for a unique, contemporary aesthetic. In his paintings, Bunting is alive to the texture of paint, using bold brush strokes or palette knife cuts for a thick, impasto surface. Bunting's portrait series is an attempt to capture the reality and the vitality of the human form, through the sweep of the brush.

The Living: Rick is a beautiful depiction of a bearded man, gazing away from the viewer, in a soft palette of peach tones, deep browns and delicate, sage greens. Softening the features, Bunting has breathed life into the figure, who seems to peer with intensity towards an invisible spot.



Through the painting, Bunting reminds us of the continuing importance of traditional modes in contemporary culture, and how to bring them into the twenty-first century with deft, artistic prowess.


About The Artist - Stephen D Bunting

Stephen D. Bunting is a contemporary fine artist, who works predominantly with oil on canvas. His work incorporates figures and faces, employing traditional methods for a unique, contemporary aesthetic.


In his paintings, Bunting is alive to the texture of paint, using bold brush strokes or palette knife cuts for a thick, impasto surface. His portraits and figurative works often possess the raw quality of a Francis Bacon painting, slightly unsettling while endlessly magnetic and compelling, filled with exceptional yet unconventional beauty.

Bunting has also branched out into graphic novel illustration, as well as black and white ink drawings and quick, rough sketches, that capture the energy of a creative moment.

His unique, graphic style has developed from his background as a successful commercial artist and his interest in comic books, and can now be seen in galleries and collections across the country. His work was recently shown as Bozboz Gallery as part of their Nu:Blood exhibition, a mixed media event, showcasing new talent of 2017.
