Stewart Fletcher

Stewart Fletcher

A renowned contemporary artist, Stewart Fletcher has a degree in Fine Arts from John Abbott College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University. Fletcher’s paintings, drawings, and works on paper have been the subject of numerous solo and group exhibitions over the past forty years, and his artwork is part of several international public and private collections.  He is in the studio daily and has an art gallery open to the public.

Known for his fascination with the human body, Fletcher explores various concepts that go beyond the representational image. He is also passionate about metaphysics, compositional space, and the interplay between colours. He often uses humour and satire to convey his message.

One must spend time with the artist to understand all the subtleties in his work and the passion that inhabits him.
