Stewart was born in 1947 above an antique shop in Tunbridge Wells and the aromas and rich patinas of turpentine and bees-wax have haunted him ever since. He worked in his early life in the craft of antique furniture restoration before the British climate got the better of him and in 1990 he and his wife moved to the south of France where he found an old village house in need of much repair. They spent two years restoring it. It was then that he met the painter, his maître, Pierre Fonferrier. He was a celebrated French artist and lived locally. Portraiture, farm animals, an old leather arm chair, a rusty oil drum… His extraordinary realism, choice of subject and use of light spoke to Stewart. Pierre was very flamboyant and charismatic, and just said “do it then”. And so began Stewart’s apprentissage. In Pierre’s atelier he watched him paint, studied his techniques, learned his recipes and in return prepared canvases and made frames, occasionally working on minor portions of his paintings . Stewart’s own work took on new life under this strict supervision and he was able to assume his new role as an artist and enter into that world . Concentrating on still life, he also studied the old Spanish and Dutch masters’ techniques. He has exhibited his work widely in France, in Paris, Nice, Marseilles, Pignans; and further afield with Quantum Art in New York, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Netherlands, and London.
