Steve "Katz" welcomes you to his sideshow of friendly little freaks and melancholy misfits. His images are whimsically dark, grotesquely cute and psychedelically dream-like. The process is more of a discovery than just moving paint around a canvas; brushing away the surface to reveal a snapshot moment-in-time and characters that exist in a world that is already there. "These creatures have a story but they only tell enough to create a sense of mystery or mood. I don't pry or ask too many questions. I'm happy to just let them be".Katz received a BFA in illustration from Parsons School of Design in NYC and along with his fine-art and graphics work he also works as a make-up effects technician where he has helped to create prosthetics and creature suits for a number of film and television productions. He has exhibited and featured his paintings in numerous group shows in Los Angeles, CA and with his recent move to Sydney from the US he has been included in a few group shows and has enjoyed being involved in the local art scene.
