The World Stage is a fifty year retrospective of the painting & drawings of social justice painter Philip Stein aka Estaño who lived to be 90.  Throughout his long artistic career, Stein used his brush to paint the socio-economic plight of the poor and unrepresented. Civil rights, women’s rights and the rights of nature are some of the struggles these historically charged paintings address. Sometimes the narrative unfolds in the guise of mythology. Man against man, man against the four natural elements and in fortunate if fleeting moments, a people in harmony with those same elements.

Stein’s paintings resonate with the strength and agency that grassroots people can generate in effecting social justice as we enter the 21st century.
