Trevor Stickman Stickel specializes in musically based artwork that captures legendary moments, powerful ideas and raw emotion. His work is described as gritty-yet-fresh, complex-yet-simple.
Graduating from a Jekyll and Hyde influence early in his career, in which he divided his time between family portraits and design work on helmets and Harleys, Trevor had the epiphany to combine both styles while reading According to the Rolling Stones. Two weeks later he finished his first canvas portrait of Mick Jagger, which thrust him into a different realm of the art world. He aptly titled it Please allow me to introduce myself.
The idea or "mission" behind Stickmans artwork is to create an artistic tribute to the music and to the musicians that have had a tremendous impact on him and many others. Historically, these tributes would have been limited to photos/posters that adorned the bedroom walls of teenagers and dorm rooms throughout adolescence. Stickman aims to create a style of art that brings these iconic figures back into our lives, and in a manner that adults can display proudly in their homes.
The concept is to take a realistic portrait and juxtapose it with a background that expresses the feelings and emotions of the subject. This method also allows Stickman to explore other disciplines of art many of his backgrounds will include abstract, expressionism, impressionism, realism, pop art, street art, surrealism and quite often a combination of these. This is where he gets to enjoy the artistic side of these pieces, while paying additional homage to some of his favorite visual artists.
