“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance” ~ Aristotle

Stephen SoulDuster uses his artwork to explore his emotions through self-examination, thus the name “SoulDuster”. Every painting tells a story, a story that reflects the artist’s viewpoints, feelings, and tiny snippets of life. The artwork is often layered with meaningful poems, lyrics and folk sayings that audiences can relate to. We encourage you to interpret the paintings based on your emotions and life encounters, and make the experience Your SoulDuster.
