Full Biography

Stephen Muldoon was born in Cleveland Ohio. He discovered his passion for painting and the arts early and by the age of 18, while still in high school, held his first one-man show. Largely self-taught he has worked with oils, acrylics, mixed-media and pottery.

Stephen has always had a natural curiosity for other cultures and a deep admiration for the European masters. This led to him backpacking across Europe, sketchbook in hand and with a trusty homemade guide of all the places to visit to experience first-hand the masterpieces that he had only seen in photos and textbooks. He recalls being moved to tears when he saw his first Rembrandt painting, and being completely in awe of detail work of the Sistine Chapel while his eyes zoned into the ceiling’s The Creation of Adam, one of his favorite images of all time. This journey largely inspired Steve’s next artistic phase, a stint in California and his eventual move to Florida where he began creating extravagant frescoes and murals as he found a steady clientele in businesses, museums and estate homes. Steve also decided at that time to work with schools where he would donate his mural work and spend time teaching children the power and wonders of art. The children had such a direct impact on his life that he decided to spend his winters in Costa Rica and eventually 4 years in Nicaragua doing mission work, painting schools and spreading art.

Stephen has always tried to push his personal limits, whether it’s working in oils, acrylics, incorporating pioneering techniques into his paintings or trying something new medium altogether. When canvas wasn’t brilliant enough to express his artistic vision, he began to combine modern materials with self-invented techniques to experiment with painting on different metals. The new medium made his artwork more an interactive experience and the natural characteristics of metal allowed him to create looks to original pieces that would be impossible to accomplish on canvas.

In addition to a growing group of passionate collectors, Stephen’s stunning works can currently be found in museums, galleries and estate homes around the world and in the private collections of musicians, professional athletes and corporate CEO’s. His art is available for purchase at select Fine Art Galleries.

Artwork Collections

Illustiration Art Collection

Like Norman Rockwell, Seuss personally created every rough sketch, preliminary drawing, final line drawing and finished work for each page of every project he illustrated. Despite the technical and budgetary limitations of color printing during the early and mid-twentieth century, Dr. Seuss the artist was meticulous about color selection. He created specially numbered color charts and elaborate color call-outs to precisely accomplish his vision for each book. Saturated reds and blues, for example, were carefully chosen for The Cat in the Hat to attract and maintain the visual attention of a six-year-old audience. By the time Seuss’s book career took off, sharp draftsman skills were evident in drawings. His ability to move a storyline ahead via illustrations filled with tension, movement and color became a hallmark component of his work, and the surreal images that unfolded over six decades became the catalyst for a humorous and inspired learning experience.

Bronze Collection

Artist Leo Rijn, the inaugural sculptor for the Dr. Seuss Tribute Collection I, was selected to launch this project due to his prized work with some of today’s top talent in the world of film, entertainment and the visual arts (including Tim Burton, Ang Lee and Steven Spielberg). Rijn has been identified as one of today’s brightest sculpting talents because of his ability to breathe life into the written word and successfully transform two-dimensional ideas into three-dimensional works of art. Universal Studios commissioned Leo to develop and oversee the creation of numerous maquette scale models for the Monumental Dr. Seuss Sculptures at Seuss Landing in Orlando, Florida. Leo was instrumental in the art direction for many of the sculpted characters and buildings now on display at this permanent Seuss attraction. His strikingly accurate Seuss works embody a masterful and intuitive Seussian sensibility, establishing him as a leading talent in interpretive sculpting.

Taxidermy Colletion

Seuss embarked on an ingenious project in the early 1930s as he evolved from two-dimensional artworks to three-dimensional sculptures. What was most unusual for these mixed-media sculptures was the use of real animal parts including beaks, antlers and horns from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’s father was superintendent. Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy was born in a cramped New York apartment and included a menagerie of inventive creatures with names like the “Two Horned Drouberhannis,” “Andulovian Grackler,” and “Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn.” Shortly after Seuss created this unique collection of artworks, Look Magazine dubbed Seuss “The World’s Most Eminent Authority on Unheard-Of Animals.” To this day, Seuss’s Unorthodox Collection of Taxidermy remains as some of the finest examples of his inventive and multi-dimensional creativity.

 

Secret Art & Archives

Illustrator by day, surrealist by night, Seuss created a body of irrepressible work that redefines this American icon as an iconographic American artist. Yet, the Secret Art often shows a side of the artist that most readers, familiar with him through his classic children’s books, have never seen. This collection, created over a period of more than 60 years, encompasses the entirety of Seuss’s multi-dimensional talent. The artistic golden thread highlighted throughout this collection is apparent in each wildly imaginative and surreal Secret Art image. The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss is an inimitable collection of artworks created at night for his own personal enjoyment. These works were rarely, if ever, exhibited during his lifetime and provide a deeper glimpse into the art and life of this celebrated American Icon.
