Steve Vigors is a multi-award-winning local South West artist residing in Busselton who recently featured on the internationally known Colour In Your Life program viewed on YouTube. He is a member of a several art societies and plein air groups and participates in the Margaret River Region Open Studios annually. Vigors works in a variety of mediums ranging from acrylics, oils, pastels, watercolours, pen/ink and charcoals. His artwork is enjoyed throughout the metropolitan, national and international arenas, as far abroad as the United Kingdom, USA, Canada and China. Vigors prefers a loose fluid application of paint and uses acrylics in layers to build up the look he desires. At times Vigors' work can get quite textured with the many layers that he applies.
Vigors mainly paints in an impressionistic / realistic style, welcomes challenges and loves learning and trialing a variety of new techniques and applications. He is inspired by our beautiful and ever changing South West coastline, which he regularly frequents. He never tires from visiting the same areas and vistas, as the different seasons brings him an abundance of new reference material.
