Stefan S. Mackey

Stefan paints still lifes, portraits, landscapes and portraits from live models. His quest to emulate the Old Masters incorporates extensive research into composition and design, anatomy, color theory, drawing, dynamic symmetry, the natural sciences, and classic materials and techniques. He makes his own paint from the finest European powder pigments, cooks various mediums based on ancient recipes, and stretches surfaces using the finest linens. Stefan's philosophy is best summed up by his belief that art is 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration.
