Steve Tandy is currently being hailed as the man of the moment in galleries around the UK. His quirky and colourful wildlife paintings capture the personalities and character traits of his subjects, making them appear almost human and putting them in settings inspired by popular culture of the ’50s and ’60s. He references movie scenes, cars, motorcycles or paintings of this period, but replaces the humans with wildlife, and describes his work as “realism and surrealism with pop art influences”. In his more serious moments he includes subtle hints about caring for the planet referencing deforestation, climate change and changing wildlife habitats, creating an extra layer of resonance for a modern audience.
