Alex Callaway is an award-winning fine artist known for his observational still life paintings. Through refining the process of panting from life he aims to create a little magic from the mundane, inviting the viewer to slow down and contemplate the wonders of the ordinary.
In his work, he celebrates the arresting beauty found in even the humblest of subjects. These are of simple, commonplace still life subjects and are painted with finesse and a sense of keen observation of light and texture. He comments, ‘I am fascinated by the presence and character of certain objects and how the fluctuating hues and intensity of north light bring these qualities to life.’
Awarded first prize in the 2019 RBSA Portrait Prize exhibition and a finalist in the prestigious 2018 Columbia Threadneedle Prize, Callaway has also received an Arcadia Contemporary Award from the 12th International ARC Salon and an Alfred Daniels Award from The Royal Society of British Artists 300th Exhibition. His work has appeared in a number of art publications and can be found in collections around the world.
