HowardArthur Tweedie

Artist's Statement

Born in Malaysia from Scots and Australian heritage, HowardArthur is an emerging artist who works mainly in oils and pastels –particularly in plein-air landscape, portrait and figure studies. After four year’s formal studies in Australia, France and Spain, I have exhibited in several prestigious art prizes and group shows in New York, Canada, London, Paris and Australia. My paintings combine contemporary impressionist realism, with a love of colour and solid and expressive gestural drawing.
