The “angels of jazz” were in their own time iconoclasts who broke the mold and challenged preconceived notions of art and behavior. Stirred to his soul by their music, artist Steve Perkins improvised with paint as his instrument of expression. Along the way he touched upon the personalities, social norms, and politics of the times.
I make bold, brightly-colored abstract paintings inspired by the lifestyle and spirit of places that I visit. Along the way I document the inspirations and my creative process through photographs and videos. Lifestyle Art Project has already been successfully completed in Thailand, China, Taiwan, India, and most recently Istanbul. I accept exciting opportunities to work anywhere in the world.
