Steve Wilson Biography


Queen Street Clock






Artist statement

In my work I try to convey – in one frame or image – a feeling, emotion or message, that challenges the viewers perception, telling a story that makes them laugh, cry, or starts a conversation.

In some cases I present a satiric look at the world we live in. I try to include those little extras that allow the eye to explore and discover hidden gems or messages. My love for architecture and our urban and suburban landscape draws me in and challenges the way I portray our world.
