Introducing

STERN ROCKWELL

The street and studio artist Stern Rockwell was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. Stern was inspired to pursue art after seeing graffiti on the trains of New York City, and his practice now includes this inspiration in his drawings and canvases. Stern has become known for his numerous characterizations of people, places and things. He has devoted himself to representing people, expressions, emotions and lifestyles using a variety of different mediums. Often his work allows poetic bursts that reflect the artwork’s mood. Stern explains, “I want people to recognize themselves, friends, strangers, and objects that they see in everyday life, and allow them a chance to have an old or new experience.” He uses various methods for his work and continues to expand and experiment with different mediums. Stern attended the High School of Art and Design in New York and studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and School of Visual Arts. He currently resides in Hong Kong, which holds a very special place in his heart.
