Stacy Victor McClain was born in Albany, Georgia one of five children. He began to demonstrate a remarkable talent for creating art at the tender age of four. Throughout his adolescent years he participated in local art exhibitions, where he won numerous awards for his artistic pieces. After graduating from Monroe High School, Mr. McClain received a four year athletic scholarship to Armstrong Atlantic University (formerly Armstrong State College) where he continued to develop, refine, and master his unique artistic style throughout his 4 year tenure as an Art major.
Mr. McClain uses mixed media to create his original pieces: acrylic, pencil, pastel, and charcoal. His collections center around the African American experience which draw from historical contexts in both America and Africa to create a manifestation of ideas. Despite his subject matter, Mr. McClain’s art work continues to captivate the eye and minds of any race, color, or cultural group.
At the end of 2006, Mr. McClain formed his own company, SVMc Artistic Designs, where he is able to fulfill a life long dream of doing what he loves to do - creating thought-provoking art, while also giving back to communities that are deprived of artistic expression.
