Steve Shorts is a contemporary Surrealist painter based out of Philadelphia. His work displays an array of mesmerizing effects utilizing vibration and duality in order to deliver an energetic rush into the viewer's mind's eye. His figures appear to be elemental forms woven out of a psychic tapestry consisting of intertwining serpentine lines and vivid color combinations. Steve earned a B.F.A from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004. While living in New York City, he had the opportunity to refine his oil painting technique under the guidance of some of the most respected artists in Visionary Art, including Robert Venosa and Andrew Gonzalez. From 2007-2010, he worked with arts nonprofit the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors (CoSM) where he studied painting extensively under Alex Grey. Later on, Steve spent three years living and creating at the Tiberino Museum in Philadelphia. He has displayed his art at venues all across the United States.
