Eugene Stetz

I grew up in constant motion, traveling from one state to the next living out of, in, and on the three C’s, couches, cars, and casinos. This life of perpetual travel has given me an endless source of inspiration and opened me up to all forms of art, even some I weren’t aware of at the time. For as long as I can remember I would carry a marker with me everywhere I went and draw on everything from car windows, to the back of paintings in hotel rooms, to the benches I was sitting on waiting for a bus all just to kill boredom unaware that what I was doing would later lead me into a life of graffiti and street expression.

This love for creating large and public works of art began to take off for me in 2013 when I finished earning my bachelors in Fine Arts. I was subjected to a small, dreary, upper east coast city where I found solace in graffiti and creating street art (that I refer to as street expression). It began with painting a three eyed smiley face everywhere I went until I grew bored of the repetitiveness of painting the same thing over and over again and shortly after I began to paint larger and more realistic in the form of portraiture. Utilizing the spray paint can I developed a fast, loose, and quick painting style that was molded by the traditional arts but refined in the dark of night using a spray paint can. This love of creating public works of art has led me back into a life of perpetual travel. Painting murals from coast to coast, into Canada, down to Mexico, and most recently in our backyards of High Falls, New Paltz, Accord, and Kingston.

    Artist and composer Mark Kostabi was born in Los Angeles in 1960 to Estonian immigrants. Raised in Whittier, California, he studied drawing, painting and music at California State University, Fullerton. Kostabi moved to New York in 1982, and by 1984, emerged as a leading figure in the East Village art scene where he cultivated a provocative media persona by publishing self-interviews reflecting on the commodification of contemporary art. By 1987, his work was widely exhibited in New York galleries as well as prominently throughout the United States, Japan, Germany and Australia. He inspired extensive international press coverage in 1988 when he founded Kostabi World, his Manhattan art studio, which employs numerous painting assistants and idea people. Beginning in the early 1990s Kostabi's work has been widely exhibited throughout Italy. Kostabi established a second home in Rome in 1996. Dividing his time between Rome and New York enabled him to dramatically enhance his presence in the Italian art scene.


    Kostabi produces a cable TV show, The Kostabi Show, where noted art critics and celebrities compete to title his paintings for cash awards.

    From 2000 to 2010 he wrote an advice column for artists, Ask Mark Kostabi, for


    Kostabi has designed album covers for Guns 'N' Roses (Use Your Illusion) and The Ramones (Adios Amigos), Jimmy Scott (Holding Back The Years), Seether (Holding Onto Strings Better Left to Fray) and numerous products including a Swatch watch, a Bloomingdales bag, Alessi vases, Rosenthal espresso cups, and a Giro d'Italia pink jersey.


    Kostabi is also known for his many collaborations with other artists including Enzo Cucchi, Arman, Howard Finster, Tadanori Yokoo, Enrico Baj and Paul Kostabi.


    Kostabi has performed concerts internationally both as a soloist and with other musicians including Ornette Coleman, Suzanne Vega, Jerry Marotta, Tony Levin, Tony Esposito, Mark Egan, Tommy Campbell, John Lee, Paul Kostabi, Greesi Desiree Langovits, Gene Pritsker, David Taylor, William Schimmel, Gene Lake, the Composers Concordance String Orchestra and the Coro Polifonico “S. Francesco d’Assisi” di Terni. His compostions have also been performed independently by Rein Rannap, Kristjan Jarvi, Kathleen Supove, Absolute Ensemble, Maano Manni, Marko Martin, Ralf Taal, Delilah Gutman and the Estonian National Symphony Orchestra. His music has been performed in Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall and the Estonia Concert Hall. His CDs include I Did It Steinway, Songs For Sumera, New Alliance, Kostabeat, Grace Notes, Closer to First and Multiple Bridges.


    Kostabi is the subject of numerous documentary films, most notably Bottom Line: The Kostabi Phenomenon directed by Peter Bach, Con Artist directed by Michael Sladek, and Everyone - Jedermann directed by Paul Tschinkel. Full Circle: The Kostabi Story, directed by Sabrina Digregorio, My Italy, directed by Bruno Colella. Kostabi has a prominent role in the Emmy award winning documentary The Art of Failure: Chuck Connelly Not for Sale directed by Jeff Stimmel.

    Retrospective exhibitions of Kostabi's paintings have been held at the Mitsukoshi Museum in Tokyo (1992) and the Art Museum of Estonia in Tallinn (1998). The famous Italian art historian and curator, Vittorio Sgarbi, curated a vast exhibition of 150 Kostabi paintings at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome in 2006. Kostabi's work is in over 60 permanent museum collections, including the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Brooklyn Museum, the National Gallery in Washington D.C., the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, the National Gallery of Modern Art in Rome and the Groninger Museum in Holland.


    His permanent public works include a mural in Palazzo dei Priori in Arezzo, Italy, a large bronze sculpture in the central square of San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy, a bronze portrait of Pope John Paul II in Velletri, Italy and large bronze sculpture in Largo Villa Glori, Terni, Italy.


    Kostabi has been profiled on 60 Minutes, Eye to Eye with Connie Chung, A Current Affair, Nightwatch (with Charlie Rose), The Oprah Winfrey Show, Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Nonsolomoda, West 57th, Between the Keys, CNN, MTV and numerous television programs throughout Europe and Japan.
