Do you remember the first time you ever watched a Disney film? That childlike wonderment? That complete immersion in story? These feelings, among many others, are what Disney's newest collection celebrates. From the "silver screen" to our new Silver Series, Walt Disney’s magical gift for storytelling is alive and well. These beautiful, modestly priced, limited editions arrive to you in a custom frame that is adorned with a Silver Series plaque commemorating all the memories Disney Animation has created over the years. This is a truly magical opportunity for you to own a bit of Disney History, and transport yourself back to when these classic characters first jumped off the silver screen, and right into your heart.
Gallery Quality Presentation: Each Silver Series edition is printed using archival inks and canvas, and is then hand-stretched and mounted in a custom designed frame created to accentuate each, individual piece of art. Limited and Certified Disney Art: Every Silver Series piece is a limited edition of 500, and is sent to you complete with a Certificate of Authenticity mounted on each, paper backed frame. These etched plaques are hand mounted on each frame, and signify a committment to quality and craftsmanship.
- The Artist
- Stephen Fishwick's photo may not be found in Webster's under the listing for "art," but it should be, because no other artist combines the elements they describe - sound, color, movement - that affect the aesthetic sense the way he does.
However, once his mother explained to him the perils of life as a starving artist, he simply declared, "Then I guess I'll just be Spiderman." After the likelihood of that reality settled in, Stephen returned his heart to art and took his first formal painting class at age ten. It was in high school that his art first earned him accolades. With the persistence of his high school art teacher, he enrolled at the Art Institute of Pittsburg. Less than a year later, he started working as a professional artist, drawing portraits, caricatures and illustrations.
In 1996, Stephen began expanding his artistic education by studying traditional drawing and painting under Jeff Watts at the Watts Atelier of the Arts in Southern California. Influenced by a wide range of renowned painters, from Norman Rockwell to Salvador Dali, John Singer Sargent to J.C. Leyendecker, Stephen has created a style all his own. "Every day I fall in love with drawing the human face and form," he says. "My sketchbooks are filled with drawings of life, from people to animals."
In a career that has spanned over two decades, Stephen has earned widespread acclaim, but two recent achievements make him most proud: First, his philanthropic endeavors that have raised over $1 million for different charities just since 2004. Second, Stephen is excited to become an official artist of Disney Fine Art, an honor that will allow him to paint Disney characters and bring his artwork to leagues of Disney fans around the world.
