Based in New York City, Stephen Cimini refers to his compositions as random symmetry. Using layered oil paint with a cold wax medium, he deftly turns indiscernible patterns into balanced, meditative compositions. Although he briefly studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and the School of Visual Arts in New York City, Stephen primarily considers himself to be self-taught. Along with being the recipient of the Pollack-Krasner Grant and being a finalist in several international art awards, his work is also held in numerous private and corporate collections internationally and he exhibits in galleries throughout the United States.
