Stephanie Amon: Faces of Hip Hop

Born in Long Beach, CA, Stephanie Amon now lives and works in Las Vegas. She is best known for her celebrity portraits and hyper-realistic paintings. She discovered her love for oil paint when she took a painting course at UNLV while pursuing a degree in nursing. Due to some setbacks and unfortunate events, it took a few years until Amon found her focus and turned her pain to power. It wasn’t until 2018 that she finally decided to live out her childhood dream of becoming a full-time artist.

While experimenting and exploring different avenues in pursuit of discovering her place in the art world, Amon finally found her identity as a portrait artist in 2019. Since then, she has received recognition from the many artists that she has produced works of art for; such as Chris Brown, BLXST, Waka Flocka, 21 Savage, Rick Ross, Lil Baby, NFL superstar Cam Newton, Golden State Warrior’s Gary Payton Jr., boxing champion Devin Haney, and many more. Amon has participated and showcased in several events such as AGENDA in Las Vegas, NV, Trap Art in Queens, NY, and Art Basel in Miami, FL. The artist has managed to sell and share her art all over the US and as far as the UK. Amon has exhibited her paintings in many museums and galleries, including Priscilla Fowler Fine Art in Las Vegas, NV, The Lost Warhols Museum in Beverly Hills, CA, and the Trap Music Museum and Cam Newton’s Fellaship Cigar Lounge in Atlanta, GA. Amon is dedicated to working hard and continuing her quest to make a mark as an artist. Through her artwork, she strives to inspire and motivate those with a dream.

The Faces of Hip Hop exhibit was part of the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District’s programming in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of hip-hop. The LVCCLD partnered with Queens Public Library and more than 30 organizations nationwide – including libraries, museums, colleges, universities, and archives – with the goal to recognize hip-hop’s global artistic and cultural impact since its birth. Funded through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), programs included panel discussions, performances, educational forums, and workshops examining the genre’s history and influence on American culture.
