Squiggleism - defined as unblended whimsical strokes of colors layered or staggered on canvas to create landscape scenes or objects unveiling the Divine's essence suggestive of small vibrational sound waves or musical notes in symphonic movements found in nature and in all things that exists. The movement was founded and created by Stefan Duncan in 2001 at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville, North Carolina with a prismatic painting called, "The Glory Tree."
"The Van Gogh Gallery website describes Squiggleism as a direct influence of Vincent Van Gogh and dubbed Duncan as the American Van Gogh. One particular artist is leading the contemporary impressionists in an effort to become "America's Vincent van Gogh"... Stefan Duncan! Duncan's amazing work is a plethora of brilliant colors tossed about in a whimsical style he calls Squigglism. Having been greatly influenced by Vincent van Gogh, Stefan utilizes this updated technique to draw the quick strokes of the impressionists into long curvy lines. These tight eddies of color dance around his paintings lighting every feature with beauty! It is this very beauty that Stefan strives to capture in all of his work; revealing the divine in nature!
Visit Stefan Duncan's Website to view all of his Beautiful Work!"
Stefan's work continues to amaze us and it gives us great pleasure to be able to show it to the rest of the world. Each painting is Neo-Gogh while still presenting the signature style of Duncan. These paintings are a gift to all who love Vincent van Gogh and a perfect representation of greatness! I look forward to each new painting created by Duncan as his ability to present beauty continues to grow! " (Written by David Wolk, 2001.)
