"The inspiration to create 'The Prestige' came from mainly two sources; the first of course, as a homage to my favourite painter Picasso, and the second from a long held belief that few things in life are ever as they appear.
Ultimately, I believe it's safe to say that we are all curated versions of our true selves. It is not until someone takes a closer look do they see the story within. This is true in so many aspects of our lives, environment and experiences. So, like so many of Picasso paintings, my objective was to create an artwork that would draw the viewer in to look deeper, beyond a pleasing first glance and find their own truth. After all, aren't we all illusionist to a certain degree?" - Stewart Stephenson
