BIOGRAPHY
Steve Sangapore is a contemporary oil painter based in Boston, MA. He is a 2013 graduate of Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT, where he earned a B.A. in studio art and graphic design. Using vastly different stylistic approaches with various series’, his work can be described as an amalgamation of realism, surrealism and abstraction with thematic focuses on the human condition.

His unique take on composition, subjects, and structural execution has led his paintings to be exhibited nationally and published in art magazines and journals, including Art Business News, The Boston Globe, Creative Quarterly, Artscope, and E-Squared Magazine.


 

STATEMENT

Displaying a disciplined technique and great attention to detail, the style of my work blurs the lines between contemporary realism, surrealism and pure abstraction - often in a single painting. Through these modes of technical execution, a deep exploration into aspects of the human condition resonate throughout the work by mode of scientific archetypes and philosophical elements. 
 

Addressing humankind’s deepest questions, the work illuminates our perpetual state of unknowing and insatiable curiosity for what we experience as life and reality. Repugnant would be a creature who squanders the ability to lift an eye to heaven, conscious of its fleeting time here.
