Baron Von Fancy
Edition of 300
Gordon Stevenson, aka Baron Von Fancy, was born and raised in New York City. Having attended Bard College to study art, Stevenson began his career creating pieces that encompass a variety of mediums and styles—from oil on canvas to electroluminescent wire sculptures. In the midst of such artistic study, Stevenson developed Baron Von Fancy, who emerged as a separate identity, method and voice.
For the past five years, Baron Von Fancy has displayed his art on billboards in the SOHO neighbourhood and elsewhere in his native New York City. Billboards featuring playful and charming expressions such as "On my way to steal your girl," "Don't call me baby," "Never not working," and "May the bridges I burn light the way," among others, have greeted New Yorkers in Manhattan and its environs as they look skyward since at least 2013.
