Born in Mississauga, Ontario, Steven Volpe’s journey to becoming a full-time artist included some important stops along the way: degrees in fine arts and education, a teaching stint and employment as a graphic designer. All have played a significant role in shaping his art. Steven sees himself as part of the tradition of figurative realism, but with a decidedly contemporary sensibility. His narrative paintings, characterized by visual irony and metaphor, range from the unsettling to the lighthearted. At times they can be political in tone, presenting subtle social commentary and a glimpse into human psychology. Steven has exhibited in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec, garnering awards along the way – most recently a People’s Choice award at the Salt Spring National Art Prize, B.C. He is represented by Ingram Gallery in Toronto and Earls Court Gallery in Hamilton, and he currently resides in Orangeville where he lives with his wife Wendy.
