Tony Bevan was born in Bradford, UK and studied painting and sculpture at Bradford School of Art, then in London at Goldsmiths College and the Slade School of Fine Art.

His figurative paintings of the 1980s established his forceful imagery contred on the human form in isolation. In his mature work he has concentrated on human head, many of them disguised self-portraits seen in extremis: viewed at odd angles, truncated and enlarged so that they take on the attributes of landscape. The same visceral language is applied to other subjects, including architectural interiors and table-top still lives that likewise convey heightened emotional states.

Bevan is internationally recognised as one of the Britain's most distinguished and distinctive contemporary artists; his works are held in the collections of numerous major public institutions across Europe, the UK and America including: National Portrait Gallery, London, Tate Gallery, London, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and of course, Bradford Museums and Galleries - of which the 2 pieces held will be on show as part of the exhibition.
