Wk 6 Artist Interview: Steven Dupus

ImageImage

The work of Steven Dupus is about similarities and contrasts. In his series of paintings “Cultural Exploration” he compares the ritual dances of cultural Hispanic culture to the club-life dancing of the LGBT community. He tries to express the differences and meaning behind each, getting across the dark and alluring nightlife, while still showing the joy and celebration it represents. In the same way the Aztec dancers show their faith by rhythmic movement, the nightlife show their beliefs.
