Captivating. Contemporary. Uncompromising.
Using a combination of found imagery, personal photography, and pure imagination, Steve Baylis creates paintings that focus on the human condition.
Every painting is a reflection of his quest to discover, recognize, and engage audiences on relevant issues. Using a proven process, each canvas is carefully planned out prior to the application of paint. This gives him the confidence to paint with gusto while maintaining a world-class level of finish.
Steve’s recent work pits the idea of self-expression against the way it can be perceived and exploited by others. He is interested in how contemporary society has come to overvalue the ‘selfie’ as an innocent form of self-expression, without questioning its potential ramifications.
