Price Upon Request

About

"Midnight Butterfly Study" is a unique mixed media artwork with embroidery. The work comes ready for display. Born and raised in Hoboken, New Jersey, Stephen Wilson is a conceptual artist whose unique medium carries his message. A background in fashion and home design built Wilson's embroidery-digitizing mastery and creative expertise. In his fine arts practice, Stephen is deeply interested in the intersection of traditional craft and contemporary culture. Wilson is represented by major galleries across the US, including Art Angels, Roman Fine Art, DTR Modern Galleries (NY, Boston, DC, Palm Beach) and New Gallery of Modern Art. His work is frequently exhibited along with his neo-pop / urban art contemporaries i.e. Robert Mars, Mr. Brainwash, Punk Me Tender; and major contemporary / modern / pop artists such as Warhol, Hirst, and Kapoor. Stephen's work was acquired internationally by the National Gallery of Art (Sofia, Bulgaria), Minart (Museo International de Arte) Museum (Guadalajara, Mexico) and the Brunello Cucinelli headquarters (Solomeo, Italy), in addition to private and public collections throughout the United States. His work has been publicly exhibited in diverse locales from the Lincoln Center in New York to Catch Restaurant in Los Angeles. Conceptual artist Stephen Wilson's street-education of textile-based techniques began with a freelance career in New York's garment industry of the 90s. His métier quickly grew into a multifaceted studio art practice, with Wilson's skill in digitized-embroidery at the core of his technique. Employing embroidery, painting, 3D printing, photography, sculpture and more, Wilson's mixed-media assemblages are unique explorations of contemporary themes. His pieces often contain millions of embroidery stitches and take hundreds of hours to create. From his studio located in Charlotte, North Carolina, a former mill town and textiles hub, Wilson aims to evoke questions about appropriation, conspicuous consumption and brand worship. His work has been exhibited in diverse locales from the Lincoln Center to the atelier of fashion-house Brunello Cucinelli, and is found in galleries, museums and private collections worldwide. Wilson has been featured in numerous fine art and popular media such as Town & Country Magazine, Huffington Post and ArtHive Magazine. Scala Arts and Heritage Publishers' recent book on the Artist, Stephen Wilson: Luscious Threads, was released in Fall 2018.
