Baron Von Fancy was born in New York City and attended Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School. He earned his Bachelors of Fine Arts from Bard College in 2006. Gordon Stevenson identifies himself by his birth name for his artwork displayed in galleries, and he uses the artistic name "Baron Von Fancy" to sign his work used for commercial products. For example, his lighters are signed Baron Von Fancy, whereas his paintings are signed with his birth name.
Baron Von Fancy works in various media in addition to canvas. He has applied his distinctive artistic sensibility to create a broad range of tangible, practical items such as sponges, doormats, socks, backpacks, lighters, bow ties, matchboxes, handbags, cell phone cases and shirts. Clever and enchanting at the same time, Von Fancy's work spans the spectrum in some instances from light-hearted to profound, or in other instances, from playful to crude.
