Stephon Senegal was born in Louisiana and raised primarily by his Grandmother.
After secondary school, he attended Howard University for undergraduate studies. His emphasis on ritual and brutality as thematic constructs began early in his development as an artist, easily tracing back to preadolescent artwork.
He entered the Maryland Institute College of Art after leaving university. Upon beginning the next level of instruction his work continued to engage similar premises albeit with a keen focus on the sculptural form. Alluding to the more violent themes in the work, the methods used in their creation are a mixture of spontaneous demolition and disciplined construction.
Though he presently works mainly in bronze and steel; his visual language continues to evolve through mediums that include works on paper, photography and video. Stephon Senegal’s first quarter of his career has been an investment in traditional and enduring mediums coupled with a resolute approach to introspection and its subsequent ocular results. Senegal resides and works in Brooklyn, New York.
