Stephanie Skabo (born May 23, 1983 in Greenwich, Connecticut, USA), is an American/Norwegian figurative painter and photographer. Themes and styles in Skabo´s work reference anecdotes and narratives, while primary influences by Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, place her work as a contemporary “Pop Art” artist. The picture composition is mainly made out of iconic motives with textual reflection. There is a hint of political agenda in her pictures with a strong aspiration towards feminine ideals. Skabo works with mixed medias, her main tools are photography and painting.
”Stephanie Skabo shows the complex through the ordinary. She is interested in topics such as ideals, expectations, fears and media appearance. Skabo questions the seemingly certain truths and creates an illustration of our contradictory cultural ideals“. – Andreas Engelstad, Galleri A, Oslo
