Stephen Earl Rogers is an artist whose work is held in collections across the world. He is a highly sought-after portrait painter whose clients include major, international art collectors, public institutions, private individuals and families.
Working mainly in oils, he creates striking contemporary portraits through a highly collaborative process. His work brings together a deep understanding of the traditions of portraiture with a very broad range of cultural references. His clients are drawn to a vivid sense of character and atmosphere and the clarity of colour and light present in all his paintings. In addition to his portrait work he creates paintings, in series, based around a common theme; these include 'What To Do In An Emergency' and the ongoing 'Stirchley Twitcher'.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
I sometimes make paintings using archive photographic material. In 'Please Turn Left/Right' the archive image held an appeal because it contained a number of symbols (the policeman, stop sign) and a gesture that was a simultaneously a symbol and instruction.
