Oliver Bedeman is a figurative painter living and working in London, whose work focuses on imagined and often dream-like portraiture. He takes inspiration from the city through drawing, and in his studio combines this observation with a colourful interpretation of literature, music and story-telling - with figures such as Alan Ginsberg, Stephen Foster and Nature Boy recurring as silent characters.

Following a degree in Painting at Brighton University, Oliver studied at the The Royal Drawing School in London where he won the Lady Rothermere Award and residency, and has since taught.

Oliver's painting of his brother Tom, was selected for the 2016 Columbia Threadneedle Prize exhibition, and that year had a solo exhibition at The Fairhurst Gallery, and a monograph printed.

2017 will see an exciting new exhibition from Oliver, so please join the mailing list for updates. For more information on Oliver's work, or to request a catalogue, please feel free to get in touch.
