About Stephen Beer

 
 
  • Biography
    Consciously and subconsciously, my work brings together influences from all aspects of my life including... dad's photographic darkroom under the stairs, science fiction, The Banana Splits, three car crashes, David Bowie & Alice Cooper, Derek Jarman & Elliott Bristow, The Saltash Monsters, dada, surrealism, Super8 film, punk, Falmouth School of Art, Rolling Head, Jo Beer, Phoebe, Gabriel... all colliding through photography, film, paint and collage. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I do creating it.
