Owen is a Scottish contemporary painter who was winner of the prestigious BP Portrait Young Artist Award in 2013. Owen's style can be described as expressive realism, where both observation and creativity play key roles. He paints figurative work and still life; the key focus of his work is to explore an awareness of impermanence and an empathy towards the inevitable passing of all things.
Owen has had solo exhibitions in Berlin and Lisbon, and has exhibited in group shows in London, New York, Berlin, Edinburgh and Glasgow. His work is held in private collections in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, Portugal, The Netherlands, USA, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong.
