Steve Cross - "Absence" - oil on board - 20 x 25cm (7.9"x9.8")
Steve Cross is a passionate and obsessive documenter of the world around him. Since the early 1980s, where he honed his artistic craft on the bare-faced walls of suburban Perth, Steve has obsessively painted, drawn, sprayed and photographed the world around him. Heavily involved in the street art scene in Australia, Steve has always been inspired by the urban landscape, a passion that has found a place in his textured, layered and collaged works on canvas. Now an in-demand painter and illustrator, Steve is also a tattooist and in 2007 co-founded Korpus Studio in Brunswick, Melbourne. He can be found there most days - coffee in hand.
