Creating a space of self-reflection with Bruce Stepan

Tapping into his Midwestern roots of Youngstown, OH, Bruce Stepan began pursuing his artistic journey in 2009. His work is described as whimsical and grotesque, yet sophisticated and refined enough to appeal to audiences of discerning taste. With a preference for oils on panel, Stepan draws inspiration from the antiquities of classical art, as well as the comedic expressiveness of animation. Despite coexisting between polarizing ends of the spectrum, Stepan’s goal is to permeate the subconscious—creating a space of self-reflection, mystery and a cosmic continuum of two-way communication.
