Stephen Lynn is fast becoming one of the North West’s most reputable artists, with portraits of the utmost quality worthy of gracing any gallery. Known for strikingly lifelike portraits with a psychedelic edge, Stephen predominately focuses on musicians, with an emphasis on those heroes of the Manchester music scene.
Described as “the pencil poet”, his series of limited edition paintings, sketches and prints have graced many galleries across the UK and continue to impress a rapidly growing fan base, with word of his work spreading to the point that exciting ventures overseas loom large.
I had the pleasure of talking to Stephen, a genuinely humble and interesting guy with a story to tell. I found out how he got started as an artist, where the name Dionysus Art came from, who fills his wall of fame of signed portraits, and what was the craziest thing he’s ever done.
