Brian Keith Stephens is a perfect example of an artist who paints directly from his emotions and instincts. Stephens prepares his canvases by attaching random bits of cloth and canvas to the surface, creating abstract patterns that he overlays with frenetic, layered, broad strokes by brush and palette knife. Simple images of animals, his children and those he loves take on iconic stature in his large paintings. Stephens has exhibited in Germany, France, Denmark and across the U.S.
Life inspires me, the everyday energy around me, love inspires me.
