Stephen Bauman is an award winning artist and principal instructor with the Florence Academy of art in their Swedish campus. Last year I wrote an article about living masters working today and Stephen was in that list of artists. We had a great conversation covering everything from his beginnings as a graffiti artist, to his classical training, and finding yourself as an artist.
Here is what we talk about:
- Early roots in Miami graffiti,
- Coming to classical art training,
- Artistic heroes,
- Working in different mediums,
- Water based oil paints,
- Teaching art,
- Knowing your materials,
- Tim’s Vermeer,
- Living in Sweden,
- Odd Nerdrum,
- Spousal feedback,
- Methods of working,
