Stephen Millar is a visual artist specialising in painting and illustration.
‘Somewhere between abstraction and caricature, my work makes use of the interplay between image and text, often for satirical ends. Colour and texture are also important to me. The composition of a piece is often an unconscious response to the depiction or manipulation of global events in the media. The result may be bleakly comic or unsettling...
I am passionate about promoting art as a medium for social rehabilitation and inclusivity. To this end I have volunteered within community arts and worked for the offender arts charity Koestler Trust in London. I completed a Masters in Art Psychotherapy in 2014 which has allowed me the opportunity to work with individuals and groups.’
