D. Brent Stephens


This website displays the art of D. Brent Stephens, an artist, musician, and educator who lives in Oakland, CA. It is for people who love California, admire its history, and appreciate its many stories. We live in complicated country, and the landscapes around us, so shaped by human hands, often only hint at the work of the generations before us.  The paintings in these two collections focus on both California and Oakland, and incorporate images and stories from these places into modified maps, portraits, signs, flags, and landscapes.
