Artist and musician Steve Northeast was born in Melbourne, Australia
surrounded by art and artists across many genres.
Residing in Laguna Beach California and dividing his time between New York, Hawaii and Sydney Australia he continues to sell his paintings worldwide.
Artistic expression was inevitable for Northeast. His style is as natural as his instinctive approach, allowing the brush to cross the canvas driven by deep emotion and the underlying aggression of the everyday man negotiating the demands of modern daily life while trying to retain his sense of self and a primal connection with his place on earth.
His skill is concise yet ﬂuid, coming from the heart. Though immersed in the urban madness of New York, the innocent childhood peace of 1980s Australia has never been far from his mind and this is reﬂected in many of his pieces. Compelled by an internal desire and a passion to create, his use of colour and texture is thought provoking and lingers long after contemplation, allowing the collector to derive his/her own interpretation.
His works explore an internal voice seeking a break away from the conﬁnements of the mechanics of life. Though seemingly arbitrary, his deliberate use of colour and texture create a subtle yet slightly unsettling vibration that emanates from his work and resonates within collectors. This thought-provoking response grows when the pieces are observed in differing light and take on new and unexpected characteristics.
The abstract nature of his work fuelled by raw emotion draws intrigue and reﬂection from those who appreciate it. Northeast works predominantly in acrylic on canvas or oil on canvas.
Available for commercial and Fine Art commissions. All paintings are one-off original works.
