About the Book
Postcards from Detroit Vol II-Paintings from 2008.
This volume is 120 pages with over 200 paintings from 2008, posted on the blog: "Postcards from Detroit" by American Artist Stephen Magsig
The inspiration came from Duane Keiser's innovative A Painting a Day blog, and Julian Merrow-Smith's Postcard from Provence.
Postcards from Detroit is a visual diary of Detroit in paintings. Stephen started painting Detroit 25 years ago, and continues to find inspiration in the place he calls home.
Stephen's larger work can be seen at the George Billis Gallery in NY & LA
Stephen's work is in over twenty corporate and museum collections and in hundreds of private collections.
He lives and works with his artist wife, Janet Hamrick and their two studio cats, Artie and Bella, in Ferndale, Michigan.

I have had more than 25 solo shows and numerous group shows. I currently show with the George Billis Gallery in NY and LA. My work is in over twenty corporate and museum collections and in hundreds of private collections. I live and work with my artist wife, Janet Hamrick and our two studio cats, Artie and Bella, in Ferndale, Michigan. We also have been subletting a painting loft in New York City for the last 15 years.
