Thursday Spotlight: Steve Wasterval and How an Evolving Greenpoint Affects His Paintings

Screen Shot 2018-05-19 at 9.56.15 PM.png

"Steve Wasterval isn’t from here, but you may be led to believe otherwise given the authenticity and love behind each of his New York paintings. In a culture where the definition of art can often seem haughty, where the medium itself is ever-shifting, there is something beautifully traditional and startlingly contemporary about Steve’s acrylic paintings: They simultaneously represent impressionism from the days of yore while also reflecting the evolving city he adores and inhabits..."

#SELLOUT100FOR100: an art party featuring 100 paintings of New York City where every attendee gets a piece

sellout-100for100-logo.jpg

Steve painted 100 little pieces of New York City in the months leading up to the show aimed at selling every one of them.

Block Party Auction

Numbered "tickets" to the show cost $100 and guaranteed you leave with your very own block of New York City art (with the price immediately increasing to $200 after the event), but which one it would be depended on what number you drew, because at the moment of truth at the big event attendees chose their block in the order of their numbers. Some people got their top choice and some hearts were broken, but fun was had by all.

In 2016 when the hotel wanted new artwork for their rooms and private dining room the Asiate, they hired the curation experts at RAREculture.com to find art that captured the energy of the city & compliment their interior palette. Several spaces feature original pieces and there are 100's of prints of Steve's art in various rooms.

The largest piece was a 10x5 ft. mural commissioned by the hotel for their private dining room

COMPLEX Arts Portfolio Review: Steve Wasterval Depicts the Gritty Streets of NYC

complex.jpg

Landscape impressionist painter, grit and graffiti aficionado, and creative director of the badass branding company Worstofall Design, Brooklyn artist Steve Wasterval uses design to blur the lines between fine and commercial art. Since he lives and breathes each perspective on a daily basis, Wasterval brings a unique approach to both worlds, shedding light on their commonalities in an era where many people want to draw a clear distinction between the two. When The Lincoln Motor Company #HelloAgain Tour—a project about capturing a city through a series of creative local experiences—asked to use Wasterval's pieces in their drive-thru art gallery, it seemed like a perfect fit.
