Stephen Menon was born in Kuantan, Pahang in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia. He graduated with a Diploma in Graphic Design from Kuala Lumpur College of Art in 1993. Stephen has a particular penchant for figurative drawing and has learnt much from Amron Omar, one of Malaysia’s leading figurative artists. This evolved to his fascination to paint famous faces such as his much sought after and famed Tunku, P.Ramlee and Mao series. As Stephens’s subjects change, the media he uses change as well. There seems to be no end to his creative limits. Stephen has 3 solo exhibitions under his belt and currently is the resident artist at University Malaya.
