Artist Bio:

A Brooklyn native Stephen Basso's highly original works are romantic yet thought provoking observations. The paintings are alive with boundless imagination wry wit and fearless color. By in large Basso is self taught. After initially attending the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan for illustration he realized painting was far more engaging. Seeking emotional honesty he looked to the work of several mentors such as Max Beckmann Goya de Kooning Guston Hartley and Ryder--artists who spoke to the human condition. Basso has been affiliated with the Tabla Rasa Gallery since 2005 and has participated in group and solo exhibitions.
