Contemporary artist Sarah Stieber’s style of Electric Realism is a stunning amplification of real life, using a bejeweled palette of brilliant hues and evocative energy to explore a spirited reality. A spectacle of saturated colors, her paintings are a kaleidoscope to her world of wishful seeing, magnifying the human experience with dazzling color too often hidden in plain sight.
From her studio in San Diego, California, Stieber vivaciously harnesses the bold and the vibrant. Her radiant figurative depictions showcase Stieber’s fascination with the human condition. Her work shines a brilliant light on daily life, depicting her subjects in a moment of overcoming adversity and achieving the mindfulness and playfulness that reality often corrodes.
Stieber created the centerpiece paintings for Courtyard Marriott San Diego and Springhill Suites by Marriott in Oceanside. Her artwork was spotlighted at the “San Diego Dreaming” exhibition at the Oceanside Museum of Art, and she was featured during Art Basel at Red Dot Miami in 2016 and Spectrum Miami in 2014. Publications include a “One on One” with the San Diego Union Tribune, the front cover of San Diego Downtown News, the front cover of San Diego Uptown News, the front cover of San Diego Daily Transcript, the front cover of San Diego CityBeat, the front cover of San Diego Reader, and the front cover of Bogamia Art And Fashion Magazine. Stieber has appeared with her paintings on the CW6, Fox5, and NBC news.
Before graduating Cum Laude with a fine arts degree and a concentration in Psychology from Boston University, Stieber spent time living and painting in Venice and Florence, Italy, inspired by the Master’s works that blanket the cities. Stieber’s artistic talent flourished at a young age, winning national art competitions as a child.
