American artist Stephen Scott Young's paintings have been exhibited in museums across the United States. Stephen knew he wanted to be an artist when he was 10 years old, and by the time he was 19, he had already sold several pieces he had created in his parents' basement.
Young's realistic renderings of Bahamian villages in hardscrabble settings are creating quite a stir, and have been compared to the work of Andrew Wyeth. Stephen says he is flattered when his work is compared to Wyeth's, Wilson Homer's, or Edward Hopper's. He is continually amazed to see his works hung next to his heroes'.
Stephen Scott Young has a gift of capturing the essence and soul of his subjects. Since his boyhood, when his portraits were of such baseball legends as Willie Mays and Hank Aaron, Stephen has always been drawn to "black subjects." "I think that art transcends race" says Young.
