Stephen Lack - FrontStephen Lack: click here to purchase on ebay! 

As described by Charlie Finch in Artnet, Stephen Lack is “a legendary polysexual sybarite of the East Village scene, a nonstop blabber, full of philosophical insights, who learned to act [he played the lead in 1981’s Scanners] with other lowlifes on the streets of his hometown of Montreal. He has been a movie star, a libertine, a devoted family man and a prickly cat in a cool alley, but Stephen Lack remains a painter of particular genius and depth.” Lack lives and works in New York.
