Dan Steven (dansteven)

Full time paint and draw. Reside in southern California.

Biography

Born in Los Angeles California USA, 1958. My work is collected throughout the United States and Europe.

I started doing film animation. I won a few awards for childrens film contests and went on to study animation. From there, I went into painting. I've had several paintings used in movie and television backgrounds for set designs, one example being the film 'Art School Confidential' in 2005.

I am a full time artist living in California. I have been drawing and painting ever since I can remember. My work has been exhibited in galleries throughout Southern California -mostly Los Angeles, Long Beach, Laguna Beach and elsewhere.

I live on the California coast where the light has a bright clarity and so vivid color is always an important factor in the creation of my paintings. I also love to draw. I work in small, medium and large scales, generally acrylic on canvas and sometimes panel.

I like to work in series which have resulted in various subjects, from still-life, landscape and figurative, to abstraction and surrealism -but all with a consistent style and technique that I have developed over the course of many years. I continue to explore layered color harmonies and painterly textures in all my work.
