Blurring the line between the real and imagined, Stev’nn Hall paints and stains images he takes with his 35 mm camera, often landscapes of his rural Ontario hometown. Each mixed media work contains a collaboration of more than 40 images which are combined, blown up, and mounted on birch panel. With acrylic, ink, and pastel he further distorts each image in an impressionist style, imbuing the ponds, prairies, and rural streets with exaggerated colors one might see through a sun flare or tinted glass.

Hall is a graduate of Concordia University where he studied film, painting, and photography. Before dedicating himself full time to his mixed media works, he was an award-winning television producer and director of indie music videos. You can see more of the Canadian artist’s process and work on his Tumblr and Instagram.
