Stevie Ronnie is an UK-based artist and writer engaged in a dialogue with language in all of its possible visual, tactile, linguistic, spoken, written, gestural and performative forms. Working across multiple creative disciplines, he produces layered and playful artworks and literary artefacts that explore the hidden, the unsaid and the unseen.
Many of Stevie’s recent works are concerned with the natural, man-made, emotional and virtual landscapes that we exist within. Since undertaking a residency in the High Arctic in 2013 his work has mainly been focussed on the subjects of universal human rights and our changing climate.
Stevie has received several awards for his poetry, moving image works, visual works and artist’s books. His visual pieces and artist’s books can be found in public and private collections across Europe and North America.
In 2019 he was awarded a DYCP grant from Arts Council England, through which he is currently completing a short research residency at the Center for Literature in Münster. Stevie has also been recognised for his interdisciplinary works through two prestigious MacDowell fellowships in the US.
