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.
Steve's expressive, classically modern take on New York City can be seen at the Columbus circle Mandarin Hotel, in the rooms and private dining room. For locals, Steve hosts an open studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn every month or two to show work, and meet artists, buyers and fans.
