We are looking forward to seeing more from Aaron Stephens. His work is raw and expressive. See more at Small Space Fest: June 20th, 2016.
I am a self-taught comic book artist who fell in love with abstract art. I spent a year playing with expressionism in oil, acrylic, watercolor and ink. I was left unfulfilled. I was disheartened after all my paintings were destroyed in a sudden Miami storm at the second art fair I was selected to. I said an expletive and decided to go back to pencil and Bristol. I really missed drawing and now it is my focus. I use the storytelling aspect of comics and the freedom of expressionism to create whatever image pounds in my head. I enjoy creating abstractions of the human from, synapses and neurons. I also challenge myself to create two-dimensional representations of abstract ideas. I prefer using pencil, pastel pencil, water color and ink on paper or panel. My paper is usually smooth Bristol but I use a lot of black drawing and a wee bit of white drawing board. I will use clay board and wood panel as well.
