Biography

Mark von Stein currently works from his A frame studio in Manchester-by-the-Sea, MA.

Mark has truly made his life and art one. In previous studios in
Boston, New York and Sydney he has painted, video taped and
photographically documented his “real life” creations. His titles
include Margarita Picnic, Light it Up and Voices from the Ancients. His
interest in travel, cartography, celebratory events and metaphysics
make his artwork a living diary.

Von Stein’s innovative approach to installation and ability to include
the audience in the creative process are unparalleled. Paintings by von
Stein are not simply pieces of canvas you hang on the wall but colorful
journeys that capture your imagination.
