Born in Pahang, Stephen Menon graduated with a Diploma in Graphic Design from Kuala Lumpur College of Art in 1993. He has a penchant for figurative drawing and has learnt much under the tutelage of Amron Omar, one of Malaysia’s leading figurative artists. This then evolved to his fascination to paint famous faces such as his Tunku, P. Ramlee and Mao series. Stephen’s subjects tend to change along with the media he uses. The artist has three solo exhibitions under his belt and is currently the resident artist at University of Malaya.
