Isaiah Stephens

The Man

Drawing is part of Isaiah Stephens' soul.  He began drawing as soon as he could hold a pencil and intends to do it for the rest of his life.  The inner strength of women that he says is his inspiration is beautifully illustrated in his work.  

In addition to creating pencil drawings he loves to read - mostly fantasy adventures and science fiction - and has a passion for writing.  He is currently working on his first novel!

When is the viewer, instead of the creator, of visual art, he most enjoys abstract art.  In his own words he "despises" creating abstract art but finds great beauty in the harmony and beauty that can be created by bringing together things that shouldn't go together at all. 

The Art

Isaiah Stephens is an American artist and writer from Lowell, Massachusetts. Mostly know for his 'Gothic Beauty' works, he also plays with art related to pop culture and surrealism.

The emotion Isaiah communicates in his work is amazing.  His ability to create unbelievably realistic portrayals of facial features with a pencil is beautiful.  Please take a few moments to watch the video below.  It showcases several of his pieces and the accompanying music and vocals is art in itself.  Enjoy.
