Stephen Doan is a Melbourne based illustrator, tattooist, graphic designer and failed breakdancer. Best known for his hyper-realistic stylised portraiture work, Stephen's tattooing influences have also armed him with a more loose - graphic approach to his image making. With a strong interest in low brow art, 80's paraphernalia and tattoo culture, coupled with a graphic design background this has enabled him to explore other subject matters with the same sensibility and eye for composition.
Stephen's latest collection of works titled "VS" explores a body of character relationships, amusing, fierce and at times unnerving, all in all enthralling and engaging. These pairings include heroes and villains, sports rivalries to co-workers. Through showcasing the partnership of good and evil, it begs the question of the mortality of this relatable conflict. Could life exist without good or evil?
