Shaun Ferguson received a BFA from University of Trent in Nottingham in 1985 and a postgraduate in painting from Royal Academy of Arts in 1988.
He is inspired by models in quiet, contemplative moods. Although conventional in composition, his portraits are instilled with a strong sense of energy and tension.
Ferguson’s work has been exhibited extensively across the UK and featured in numerous publications. It has been awarded the 1989 Henry Wyndham Prize and the 1988 Elizabeth Greenshields Award, among others.
