As an artist who is very process oriented, Steve enjoys painting layers of color and creating patterns using motifs such as flowers, leaves, and boats. Through repetition, Stefan has developed his own aesthetic language, making each one of his subjects into his own signature. “I’m not rushing, I’m just sitting here taking my time trying to figure out what looks good. I like to start somewhere then think about what I’m going to do next. I’m working on figuring out what I want to do.” One can easily recognize his artwork, through his personal take on archetypal symbols and patterns.
Dimensions: 6 x 5 x .5"
