Noah Alexander Isaac Stein is a visual artist living and working in Portland, OR. Focused on ecstatic paintings that attempt to bridge the divide between artist and viewer through both technique and subject, Noah’s art is by turns abstract and representational, frenzied and peaceful, holy and blasphemous.
After studying drawing and painting in Portland, Noah left his formal art education for a series of extensive travels through the Middle East, Asia, and North America. During this time Noah developed unconventional techniques of visionary cold wax and oil painting, as well as founding international art organization Art Knows No Borders.
An award winning artist, Noah’s paintings, installations, and written works have been featured internationally. Noah is also a prominent voice for artists in Portland, and is the President and founder of First Friday PDX.
