Stephan Lupino, a world renown artist, painter, photographer and sculptor will be presenting his love and success stories about the art industry and his work. Stephan began his career as a fashion model appearing in Italian and American Vogue, representing the Valentino and Versace brands among others. In parallel, Lupino studied acting at Stellar Adler Conservatory where graduates have included: Marlon Brando, Warren Beatty and Robert de Niro. It was in school where he met and developed a close relationship with Deborah Turberville, the renowned fashion photographer credited with transforming fashion photography into avant-garde art. Deborah lent Lupino his first camera and soon after he won his first commission with Details magazine, one of the foremost avant-garde magazines at that time. His ability to capture intimate portraits of his subjects, the physical intensity and the visual grittiness of his photos became ‘Lupino’ trademarks. His work has appeared in Vogue, Photo, Zoom, Stern and multiple art magazines. Through the 80’s his photography played a dominant role in the New York underground art culture. At night, he would capture the scene and mood of celebrities at New York’s hippest nightclubs where he also photographed artists and socialites such as: The Ramones, Billy Idol, Grace Jones, Brian Ferry, Rupert Everett, Terence Stamp and Malcolm Forbes. Strong influences in his life include famous commercial pop artists such as
Andy Warhol, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Keith Harding. Today, Stephan has transformed his artistic talents into paintings and sculptures that are exhibited around the world. https://stephanlupino.com/
