Stevenage born artist’s homecoming exhibition
AN ARTIST who grew up in Stevenage is having his work displayed on home soil for the next month.
Patrick O’Sullivan, who attended Shephalbury and Barnwell schools in the town, will be exhibiting in the Boxfield Gallery at Stevenage Leisure Centre until February 12.
“The way I describe my work is abstract construction and the paintings actually look like sculptures on the wall,” said Patrick, who’s free month-long exhibition is entitled Patrick O’Sullivan’s Constructive Painting.
“After completing school in Stevenage, I went on to do arts school in Norwich and then went abroad for a bit before coming back to Britain in 1992.”
The 45-year-old, who now lives in London and works for the National Gallery, is having his work featured at the Boxfield Gallery for the third time since returning to the UK.

“It’s such a nice large open space to show my work, which it needs,” said Patrick, who still has family living in Stevenage,
“It’s almost like a cornerstone for me in a way, as it’s my third show here in about 20 years. I think the first time was in 1993 when I was showing work I’d done in Canada, and then again in about 2001.”
