Stefan's work is focused on sculpture and wood is his primary medium. Spending many years dealing with period carving and restoration, having a wide range of clients, including commissions for
The National Trust, he has developed his technique to achieve high realistic representation in his sculptures.
The subjects of his artworks vary, but Stefan always aims to reflect the identity of nowadays society. He accepts his ideas as an allegorical narrative of how contemporary man has been socially
Wood is the most unique sculpture material for the artist. The fact it has been something alive and later transformed into a piece of art reminds him of reincarnation. While working in
wood, Stefan aims to create curious to our reality objects with the contents, which evoke amazement. That includes a surreal transformation of forms, implementing new meanings and contemporary
archetypal symbols of human identity. Capturing a unique moment or action is another aspect of his art.
