Steve Hewer Renditions of Intricate Architecture and Cityscapes
(Click an image for larger views with titles and descriptions)
Steve Hewer is a pyrographer specialising in burning renditions of intricate architecture and cityscapes onto hardwood.
After a long career in IT where artistic skills can become repressed, Steve has leapt into pyrography. He has fast-tracked his learning of the art since 2017 by burning many different subjects, using different wood types, while trying out different tools and techniques.
Steve creates his own ‘canvas’ by planing, cutting, routing and sanding hardwood to size. Once the canvas is ready, Steve draws an image in pencil and then burns the final picture over several iterations. One of Steve’s unique pictures takes on average 100 hours to produce.
Steve was the profiled Artist of the Month in the May 2019 edition of the art newspaper, The Humm.
