Stacey Manton b 1971

Stacey Manton is a professional artist and painter following an age-old tradition of figurative painting.
Living in Stockport his work is based on life in and around Greater Manchester especially, however he visits many major cities in search of inspiration.
With a background in design and advertising but having no formal art school training Stacey has spent over ten years in the industry as a commercial illustrator.

Stacey began painting in oils at the age of seven and was preoccupied throughout his early years with being able to paint like the old masters, referring to the techniques of great painters such as Velazquez, Goya, Rubens, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Chardin, Hogarth, Manet and Constable.

Stacey has devoted himself to his work for many years and latterly spending much of his time painting.
It has been the process of painting which has been the incentive for his work. He has recently had works accepted into Manchester City Art Gallery in their 'Faces' section. This is open to the public all year round.

The focus of his work is the people we see everyday, in the park, in a bar, in a window or on a wall.
For Stacey these are the people who make a place special and these are the people which Stacey goes to extraordinary lengths to capture in his pictures. He uses various means of procuring the photographs he works from, using hidden cameras, 'drive-by' photography and even offering booze or fags in return for a snapshot. The subjects being the overlooked, the old, the frail, the drunk, the destitute, the disenfranchised, or the plain comical.
