Stephen Kasner is a Cleveland based Artist known for creating ominous yet hauntingly beautiful paintings. Kasner has created a dark visual language to define his atmosphere and subjects - guiding the viewer ever deeper into his work.

Kasner uses organic and darkened textures in a dreamlike haze of paint to evoke this atmosphere. Birds, snakes, and masks frequent the artist's focus, which seems to lurk under the surface of each painting.

Kasner's main mediums include paint, photography, drawing, as well as music under the name Blood Fountains along with David Beaver, Daniel Koja, Yoshiko Ohara, Cheryl Pyle, Madeleine Lila Jaine, and Rebecca Kasner. Kasner is also an accomplished album artist who has worked with Khlyst, Sunn O))), Integrity, Lotus Eaters, and others. We have chosen some of our favorite works below.
