Check out Steve Seleska’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Steve Seleska.

Steve, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I wasn’t born, it was more like I fell out into the suburbs of Orange County. A city ruled by Mickey Rat. Growing up in the suburbs was like one uneventful day after the next. I attended mediocre schools, where I learned the art of self-deception. I eventually made my way to Long Beach and attended Long Beach State. It was a large campus with a lot of students. One could just disappear…..I often did. After graduation I moved to Europe, where I lived illegally for almost ten years. I lived in cities like Basel, Switzerland, Prague, Czech Republic, and Milan, Italy. I think I just used way too many coma’s in that last sentence. I worked as an artist and photographer and somehow managed to pay the rent. After getting kicked out of England (I’ve been kicked out of bars and clubs but never a whole country). I realized it was time to move to L.A. In L.A. I eventually got work in the photography department at ABC and later at NBC. I finally got fired from NBC (always wondered what took them so long). I started my own business doing epoxy resin floor coatings. My art work has nothing to do with photography. I do painting and sculpture. My work is based on environmental fantasies. I create environments where I would like to live (and not get kicked out of).

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
I create fantasy landscapes and environments. I have one series called Micro-Environments that explores environments on a molecular level. I have another series called Landescapism and they are basically three dimensional landscapes done on board. My main materials I use are epoxy resin, acrylic, and latex rubber. My work tends to have a dystopian feel to it. A broken dream.

Have things improved for artists? What should cities do to empower artists?
I think we should have buy an artist a sandwich month.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
I have shown at various galleries in L.A. such as Coagula Curatorial, Launch LA, and Muzzeum. I have also shown at San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, San Francisco Art Institute, and Irvine Fine Arts Center. People can support my work by buying it. I am tired of storing that crap.
