The title presentation, "Spectacular, Spectacular," serves as a pop meditation, delving deep into the rich religious and cultural tapestry of India. Stoffel's vivid and thought-provoking interpretations of India's themes promise to transport viewers to a world of color, spirituality, and tradition.


In a delightful juxtaposition, Stoffel also unveils "Little Japan," a nuanced exploration of Japanese culture as experienced on the Hawaiian islands. This collection offers a fresh perspective on the fusion of Japanese traditions with the unique backdrop of Hawai'i's landscapes.

The following year, he was honored as the selected artist for the amFar Rocks Benefit for AIDS research and featured in AM New York's Premiere Art Rocks event, which catapulted him to wider recognition. Dylan's Candy Bar on Manhattan's Upper East Side commissioned him to create a candy-inspired collection, aptly named "Sweetness," after seeing his work featured in the daily press.


Stoffel's commitment to his craft and consistent exhibition presence led GLAAD to recognize him as one of their Top 100 artists for 2009.

His work originates from photography, undergoes digital composition and manipulation, and is then meticulously transformed onto canvas by hand. Stoffel's subjects are deeply personal depictions of world cultures, drawn from his extensive travels. Based in New York City, he continues to feed his wanderlust through exploration, with recent journeys taking him to China, Laos, Taiwan, and Hawaii - each adventure resulting in captivating NYC exhibitions.
