Luis Cesar Stephenberg Alers was born in New York and raised in Puerto Rico. He graduated from the Puerto Rican Culture Institute, School of Fine Arts, and earned a MA in painting from the Institute Allende, Universidad de Guanajuato, Mexico. Since the beginning of his career in the arts, Stephenberg demonstrated an interest in painting, mixed media, performance, video art, and conceptual art. Throughout his professional development, he has used many mediums for his investigations.
With Stephenberg's current series Prime Matter he presents the material for art production in the physical enigma, by reducing the chromatic potential and adding the conditions of gravity, elasticity and the basic elementary self. His materials are burlap, wood, paint, rope, coconut, brass, and cooper. The final outcomes are archetypal repositories of the artistic cultural background. Luis Stephenberg has participated in many national and international exhibitions. His work is held in museum and private collections. He works and lives in Bronx NY.
