Click to preview The Urban Alphabet photo book

The paintings in this Urban Alphabet are from photographs taken by the American Artist Stephen Magsig from details of old theater marquees, neon signs and painted signs of local businesses. They are a record of a vanishing landscape. Most are derived from photos of the Detroit vernacular scene. With this alphabet Stephen Magsig examines a bit of Detroit’s past and shows a bit of his own.

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.
