Stephen Teeuw is an accomplished fine art painter, adept in creating startlingly accurate portraits from thick strokes of oily sludge. He can do it all; people, animals, still life and probably a landscape or two. But (and this is childish of us) what we love the most about Stephen is the secret section of his website where he catalogues his most irreverent sketches, created in quiet times between paintings.
Things I Shouldn’t Have Drawn is an archive of vomiting old men, women with their breasts draped on furniture, cats fellating each other and other vulgar, unspeakable images scratchily drawn in pen and ink. They reveal much about the inner workings of Stephen’s mind; his hopes and dreams, fears and woes. But mostly they just show that he’s a dirty little f****r who likes to squander his artistic gifts creating vulgar material that’s unfit for human consumption. And we can’t blame him. More please Stephen!
