Brad Stumpf is a Chicago-based interdisciplinary artist from St. Louis, Missouri. He attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2015. He is an experienced lighting professional and has worked at Archistoric Products, a Chicago-based lighting company, for over three years.
Stumpf's recent work consists of handmade objects that depict lust, love, and expectation with visual poetry. His paintings function like miniature stage sets; they are small in scale, and the handmade objects within consist of paper birds, butterflies, drawings, and notes that add an additional layer of encapsulated thought.
