Steve Salo is an Australian contemporary artist, best known for his emotive portraiture and expressive landscape paintings.
“Through the visual voice of painting, I communicate emotion. We are complex of mind and spirit and my intent as a contemporary portrait artist is to explore the human psyche through painting these complexities. I am interested in portraying this aspect rather than focussing on the surface level alone. My landscape paintings also go beyond the visual perception, I am more concerned with portraying the feelings evoked by being in a place.” — Steve Salo
Salo has exhibited around Australia and been a finalist in many art prizes including the prestigious Fisher’s Ghost Art Prize, the Mosman Art Prize and the Salon des Refusés (of the Archibald). His works are held in private collections in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, China, Hong Kong, UAE, Europe, the UK, USA and Canada.
