Stephen Kasun Short Biography:
Stephen Kasun is a full time artist who lives and works in downtown Savannah, GA. He paints exclusively with palette knives and thick impasto oil paint, creating impressionistic works based on Savannah and the Lowcountry.
Being academically trained, Kasun has evolved from traditional portraiture and still life to a more loose and free expression using bright colors and contemporary methods and subjects.
"For almost 3 decades, I have been drawing and painting and honing a unique visual language that I hope transcends time and space. I believe all painting should be melodical, and regardless of the subject matter, I want the viewer to "feel and hear" the "song" in the painting.
