Stephen Lyttelton is a New Zealand-based semi-abstract artist. He has exhibited his works in Auckland at community art galleries
and at the Browne School of Art. He paints in acrylics as this gives him the robust physicality to his paintings that he seeks and the connection to the places painted. He applies multiple layers of paint as his ground, adding dominant hues from the full colour spectrum as his works evolve. He may include mixed media such as sand from the beaches of the West Coast and South Pacific Coasts of Aotearoa New Zealand, to strengthen his paintings' stories. He is not afraid to experiment with bold colours and his works are multi-layered and expressive.
Stephen is passionate about the landscape of Aotearoa and in particular its dramatic mountain, coastal and seascapes and this is reflected in the subject matter of his art works. He also has a strong interest in the cultures of the Polynesian Triangle and likes to paint mythical scenes from these cultures especially from Aotearoa and Rapa Nui Easter Island. In these paintings, he may include abstract figurative elements to reflect the connection to the human history and the spiritual association.
Artists Stephen finds inspiration from include Vincent van Gogh, Matthew Wong, Peter Doig and Mark Rothko, as well as New Zealand artists Rita Angus, Colin McMahon and Toss Woollaston.
