Stephane Sierra Paint

By Viridiana Gutiérrez Tejeda

“Always attracted by expressionism, painting in the footsteps of Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt, I learned that I could draw with the paint texture. There was no need to deform the lines of reality to show the expressionist emotions of a realistic work. My encounter with Lucian Freud was very important to establish my style; the study of his work allowed me to do so without deviating from my expressionist path.  In my time, I decided to use the photo as a base. My goal is to reach a hyper-expressionism; take out the expressionist emotion of a hyper-realistic work.”—Stéphane Sierra.

Born in 1976 in Scotland to a French mother and a Mexican father, Stéphane Sierra passed his childhood traveling: Scotland, Wales, Mexico, USA, France.

Constantly drawing, he decided to pursue graphic design studies in Paris. He chose the Met de Penninghen School (E.S.A.G.), which has a worldwide reputation for the drawing and illustrating qualities of its graduates.

Once he obtained his diploma, he started painting and directing films. He worked as a commercial and corporate movie-maker, participated in two painting exhibitions in Paris, and directed a dozen short feature films. In 2006, he decided to move to Mexico in order to dedicate himself entirely to his painting.
