Stuart Dunkel was born in Fair Lawn, New Jersey in 1952 and currently lives in Boston. He began painting and playing classical music at the age of five and went on to a long career with top orchestras in Boston, New York, and Hong Kong. In 1994, he transitioned from music to fine art.

Dunkel is an artist, a musician, and an author. He has studied music at Boston University, Mannes College of Music, the Juilliard School (Doctorate), and art at the Boston Museum School, Kent State, the Academy of Realist Art, the Seattle Academy of Art as well as privately with respected teachers and other realist painters. Even after his extensive education, Dunkel still feels that he is self-taught because he has utilized his innate artistic abilities throughout his life.

For his subject matter, Dunkel alternates between still life, landscape, and animal portraits that fuse detailed depictions with subtle humor. He hopes his viewer will find joy, optimism, and playfulness, as well as a sense of classical balance and beauty in his work.

Dunkel's professional track has revealed to him the many similarities between music and painting. Rhythm, harmony, counterpoint, balance, contrast, scales, chromatism, keys, high and low, dark and bright, loud and soft, colorful and dull, can all be found in his compositions.
