Painting

Marlene Steyn

Marlene Steyn is a student at the Royal College of Art in London, where she is obtaining her degree in Painting. Originally from South Africa, her work is a patchwork of faces, styles, and media that use both additive and subtractive qualities to build her compositions.

Marlene depicts fantastical worlds, inner turmoil, and conflict in her paintings. With the way she handles media, it makes for a beautiful grotesqueness in her work.
