Van Gogh, American Van Gogh, Squiggleism, the Epiphany of My Life, Angel Oak, and Stefan Duncan

I just had the epiphany of my life. You ever have one of those moments when suddenly everything in your life comes together to a kind of fate....or journey down a path that you realized had been mapped out for you long before you took your first step. Angel Oak is that for me. Lol.... it all started with the tree...the one I slammed into in a car accident that put me in a coma. It took me on the path to become an artist. And the first painting I ever did back in 2001 or so of "The Glory Tree" go figure... was of a tree with a glorious sun, an oak tree...go figure. And here I am 16 years later, from a guy just beginning art in a very late start, to be posting of a photo of Angel Oak, that seems to have revealed to me a vision of my spiritual faith. From a little newspaper editor of a small town in North Carolina, I become one of the world's top contemporary artists with a spiritual mission started 16 years ago, and today...I have my epiphany that this journey I begin from the moment of striking that - of all things - an oak tree. Everything that has happened to me since then, I would do it all over again for the place it has lead me to be today. I feel the Great Spirit, through Angel Oak, is the mission of my life.... to reveal to the world the sacredness of the land not only for its physical importance that goes with breathing, but of our spiritual. This photo is like the Holy Grail of my life. I feel so blessed...and double so I have my friends, my people from around the world that are spiritually with me. Acaw! So, when I start on my painting inspired from this photo, I already know it will be the most meaning, spiritual painting I shall ever do in my life time..

World Renown Artist Dreams Of Creating A Literary Masterpiece


Stefan is on fire. He is painting everyday, seeking to create paintings of beauty and Light for the world. When he sets aside the brush, he is writing, currently working on a serious work of literature
of life of a young man that will grow into an artist,  during the "wonder years" of the  1960's at Lake Waccamaw, North Carolina.  Stefan has an English Degree and spent half his life writing at newspapers. He has always dreamed to be a published author whose book is literally a work of art. He has studied the greats as James Joyce, Hemingway, Henry James, William Faulkner, etc.

His is known around the world as one of the top contemporary artists of today and hopes his book, "Waccamaw, Where Angels Fall," will be considered as worthy in the world of literature.

"Every word is like a stroke of paint. I am pouring every ounce of my artistic soul into this story inspired from the people I loved and part of my life. The narrative is loosely biographical. The story is filled with love in a world of the 1960's in a small community around the shores of a lake in the south. I hope this book will be my greatest painting  and you come to love the characters as I have, living with them through their moments of glory to  their dramas in the preciousness and fragility of life in a world peppered with cruelty, prejudices, and alcohol. It was a time of innocence in the Fall of Eden of those that survived by the innocence of their hearts and those that died or won with poisoned hearts. And through the quagmire rises a beacon Light that would one day shine before the whole world to see.

The work is currently being written and published around winter of 2018.
