As a grit and graffiti aficionado, he truly does heart NY. He was classically trained in Russian impressionist, plein-air landscape painting, but has since defected and is a full blooded American impressionist. Today Steve's take on New York City as an ongoing subject has lots of texture and layers, both aesthetically & metaphorically. His mentors may be shaking their heads but lovers of NYC can't get enough.


Currently Steve's classic but modern expressions of New York City can be seen at the Columbus Circle Mandarin Hotel's private dining room Asiate. For locals and visitors, Steve opens his studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn every 6-8 weeks to show work, and meet artists, buyers and fans.
