“Stefan Maguran - a former project manager, is a self-taught artist based in Adelaide, Australia.
Driven by a desire to paint in his 50s, his work reflects a myriad of subjects, styles and techniques and seeks to encapsulate immediacy.
Stefan is a proponent of the anti-establishment, anti-aesthetic position embodied by Jean Dubuffet.
As organiser of the annual Adelaide Outsider Art Festival, Stefan seeks to promote the art which emerges on the fringes”

Stefan Maguran"As an artist who has exhibited and won prizes around the world for my realistic still-life paintings, I can't tell you the number of times I've wanted to throw down my brushes and paint, instead, with the freedom and creative expression that Stefan Maguran brings to his work. I admire Stefan's ability to create art that doesn't try too hard to be anything more than a feeling, a sensation, or an experience. I can capture a scene. I can paint objects... but rarely have I been able to paint and provoke a response from a viewer in the same way that Stefan Maguran can."
