If you’re familiar with Matte Stephens, the following words might come to mind: illustration, retro, mid-century, and vintage. However, his more recent paintings take you from the 1950s into the present. He has a slew of new paintings available through Austin-based gallery Sebastian Foster. One of my favorites, NYC from Staten Island, is pictured above.

Sebastian Foster also represents a number of awesome artists like Ruth Shively, Amanda Blake, and Elizabeth Bauman.
