Beau Stanton

Brooklyn, NY, USA

Title: Derelict Vessel

Genre: Painting

A painter and muralist, Beau Stanton creates work ranging in size from tiny eye miniatures to large-scale murals ornamenting entire building facades. The work combines classical oil painting with intricate patterns inspired by ancient architecture, letterpress ornaments, and decayed infrastructure. In search for historical reference, Stanton begins his artistic process by exploring historic buildings and abandoned sites in the NYC area and beyond, collecting photo references, Victorian ephemera, and antiquated machinery. These artifacts often appear in Stanton’s paintings as visual cogs in heavily ornamented machine-like compositions.
