Local artist dubbed the American Van Gogh

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A bad crash, weeks spent in a coma, and a long road to recovery seem to have lead already talented artist Stefan Duncan to a new level in his career.

He is the creator of a new branch of Impressionism called "Squiggleism."  His team describes Squiggleism™ as "a Van Gogh dash with a twist, representing a unit of the Divine that exists in everything."

Duncan has been dubbed the American Van Gogh and fifteen of his paintings are displayed on the Van Gogh Gallery website.

He visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to share his story and some of his work.
