When we first opened MEYVN, we envisioned all types of people shopping here. But, we really relished the idea of people with unique creative points of view finding interesting pieces that really spoke to them and assembling outfits that were intensely personal. That's why Stephen stood out to us. Stephen was that customer.
So, when we found out that Stephen was an artist it made complete sense.
Stephen Eichhorn lives and works in Chicago, IL. In 2006, he received his BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been included in numerous national solo and group exhibitions, with highlights including Johalla Projects, Chicago (2014), CES Gallery, Los Angeles (2014), Ebersmoore, Chicago (2012, 2011); the Elmhurst Art Museum, Elmhurst, IL (2012); Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN (2012); Bucket Rider Gallery, Chicago (2008); Josée Bienvenu Gallery, NY (2008); and Cairo, Seattle (2008).
More than anything, Stephen is known for his detailed collage work, specifically working with images of plants and animals. He has thousands of intricately cut out images of all sizes and level of detail from books and magazines of all sorts of fauna. The key is being able to remove them from their original context and then to rearrange them on the canvas like a "paper puzzle."
