“Growing up in an urban jungle, surrounded by out of scale concrete fortresses, has inevitably informed my development and visual aesthetic as an artist. Inspired by my own experiences growing up on the Pepys Estate in Deptford, south London , my paintings investigate dystopian themes and ideas associated with British housing estates.. I’m interested in exploring the social issues that arose from the creation of this estate – security, isolation, control and gang culture – as well as its design and architecture, and the history of the site”
Prior to becoming a painter Steve had a successful career as a Creative Director working for various international branding agences. He graduated from Goldsmiths and from Bath Spa with a Masters in Fine Art.
