About Stefan Hengst

Stefan Hengst is a New York-based photographer, artist, designer, and the owner of Stefan Hengst Design. Originally from the Netherlands, Hengst attended the St. Joost Academy in Breda and moved to New York City in 1996.  His work has been praised by the renowned curator Barry R. Harwood as “a highly original design in response to the everyday modern world around us.” In his work, Hengst not only explores his outer experience and vision of the world, but also expresses his personal history, emotions, and beliefs. He sees himself as a modern day storyteller who tells stories through shapes, lines, and forms. Entitled Flow, the work is an abstraction of the Bay Ridge landscape with free-flowing patterns superimposed onto it to mimic the movement of water. Hengst incorporated into the composition twelve photographs which he took in the Bay Ridge neighborhood. These images provide a sense of timelessness—a frozen moment within a world of high-speed image saturation.
