Stella Vine

Stella Vine is one of the new generation of British painters that is emerging from the inevitable hangover of the long and illustrious careers of Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud. With a bold and distinctive style, Vine handles topics of contemporary culture and self side by side, working with a candy coloured palate of vibrant hues.

She rose to prominence having been featured in Charles Saatchi's Young Blood exhibition, her portrait of heroin addict Rachel Whitear commanding widespread media attention.
