(Red Brick Market, home of Suede Galerie)
Since the 2nd Jan, I’ve been having a revamp where I’m based at Suede Galerie, and it is almost complete. Hopefully I’ll get to do a lot more painting than in 2019, when it seemed difficult to balance being an artist and being a shopkeeper. A lot more focused and organised this year already.
If you are in or near Liverpool, Suede Galerie is one of over 50 individual shop units inside Red Brick Market, which is open 7 days a week, 10am till 6pm Mon-Sat and 10am till 4p on Sundays …

So, who IS Stephen Mahoney?
I was born in the notoriously creative city of Liverpool back in 1978, where I still live today in the beautiful Sefton Park area. It wasn’t until April of 2013 that I took up painting, purely on a whim, one life-changing night when it finally dawned on me that I needed to find a hobby more productive and less costly than online poker!
What does he do, exactly?
Fine art portrait paintings, created primarily in black & white acrylics on stretched canvases
And the prices?
Prices start from £99.00 for a 12×9″ (approximately A4 size) canvas original. The example pictured below was painted on the most popular 18×14″ size, which prices start from £199.00
So, how does it work?
All work is patiently carried out from photographs, with visual updates on the stages of development being continually sent throughout the process, right up to the point of completion
A small deposit is initially required, with the remaining balance only due once the painting is complete and has been fully approved by the client. For information on purchasing original artwork and commission enquiries, please use the “contact” page at the top to submit your questions/requests or email: email@example.com. You will receive a response usually within 24hrs. International enquiries more than welcome
Why “I Con Art”?
The trading name “I Con Art” derives from the fact that I don’t have any training or art qualifications to speak of but more specifically relates to the subject matter of my commercially-focused pieces – I have an ever-expanding portfolio of work that features iconic figures and scenes from the world of cinema, television, music and sport. My favourite subjects to paint are iconic people as well as beautiful animals, an example of which is illustrated perfectly below…
