Stephen Beccia – on showcase January 1 – April 15, 2024

Stephen Beccia is a self-taught contemporary visual artist who lives and works in Hudson Massachusetts. While pursuing a career as a musician from the age of 10, he explored and practiced his lifelong interest in drawing and painting.

On paper he has also been a storyteller, publishing several YA novels. It wasn’t until 2017, during a time of self-reflection, when he turned his focus fulltime by telling stories visually on canvas and paper. Expressive lines, bold colors and geometric patterns are a constant theme in his work.

Inspired by Picasso’s talents and drive to create something new, Stephen constantly explores and experiments new styles and techniques to hopefully discover a world of design and color that does not yet exist. From other-worldly abstracts, to whimsical portraits, his unique style draws the viewer in for a closer look.

Stephen has a strong online presence and has displayed and sold his art in several New England galleries, businesses and exhibits, including his very first pop-up gallery showing in 2018, displaying over 100 pieces of work.
