Born in New York City, 1986, Stephen Palladino creates works of art that often times portray nostalgia in modern form. Eras mixed with modern elements represent the fusion that occurs between the new and the old. It’s the same relationship within music or fashion. Like vintage Levis and Air-Jordan’s. Palladino’s work might say, ”Hello, I am Wu-tang and Led Zeppelin.” But that’s up to the viewers eyes to listen for allegory.
Moreover, re-development is so frequent in this artist you never know what to expect.
Palladino currently lives and works in the Tampa Bay area.
A majority of the work I create is based off one fluid line. I like the challenge and rewards of creating contour subjects. With my eyes opened or closed, figures and faces are created quickly by making one continuous line in a sub-conscious motion. It’s distractive and it’s a process that helps me release the way I feel through the piece. I’ve drawn like this forever and it’s the most natural part of my style.
