  • "I was born and raised in Los Angeles and now live and work in San Francisco. Art has always been a passion of mine; I'm trying to show the viewer that beauty can be found in places that we ordinarily wouldn't look.
    Most of my work is non-representational due to the abstraction of color, shapes, typography and forms of overlapping textures. Living in San Francisco has had a major impact on my work. Decaying walls, shipyards, industrial sites, and abandoned buildings have all been a big influence. The ageing, rust and marks on these surfaces are what I find fascinating and inspiring.
    I tend to walk down by the Piers because I'm always guaranteed to stumble across a surface that will catch my attention. Every time I head out, I'm always carrying my camera. I capture a variety of angles for a variety of compositions. Once I have a strong selection of photography that I can work with, it's back to the studio to start painting." ~Steve Javiel
