The multi award-winning Steven Camley was born in Glasgow in 1960. He graduated from Glasgow
College of Building
and Printing with qualifications in both Graphic Design and Illustration.
He spent the next ten years earning a living as a graphic artist, while establishing a reputation as a
regularly contributing to the New Statesman, Business Insider, and a host of advertising clients.
In 1995, Steven’s witty illustrations came to the attention of Scotland on Sunday, where he was offered the
position of editorial cartoonist, providing humorous comment across the paper
on politics, current affairs, business and sport.
In 2000, Steven was invited to join the Sunday Herald where he spent three successful years before being invited to
join The Herald where his cartoons have surprised and delighted readers, five days a week, since 2003.
Every Herald reader is rewarded by their purchase of the paper by his hard- hitting pithy observations of the world.
Always on the side of the underdog, willing to lampoon the most powerful, and fearless in
cross-party criticism, no politician is protected from his irony.
The original watercolour paintings are full of high-quality draughtsmanship, wit and energy.
They are also quite beautiful.
Famed writer and artist Alasdair Gray is a great fan of Steven’s work.
He writes: ‘Newspaper cartoons are sold cheaply in such large quantities that hardly anyone thinks the original
pictures from which they are scanned have value till after the cartoonist dies. This exhibition is a chance
to acquire an original work to enjoy before posterity catches up with you.’
