 Steven Assael

Artist Steven Assael in his studio

Steven Assael was born in New York, New York in 1957. He attended Pratt Institute and presently teaches at The School of Visual Arts in New York. Mr. Assael balances naturalism with a romanticism that permeates the figures and surroundings of his paintings and drawings. The focus of his work is the human figure, either individually or in a group, rendered in glowing relief by gentle beams of warm and cool light. Steven Assael’s classical talents are as rare as they are essential to the diverse art world of the late Twentieth Century.

Assael has had several solo shows nationally in recent months, including the Columbus Museum of Art, Cress Gallery of Art at the University of Tennessee, Lowe Gallery in Atlanta, and Forum Gallery in Los Angeles. In 1999, a retrospective one-person exhibition was held at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, Washington. Steven Assael’s work has also been exhibited at The Arkansas Arts Center, (AR), The New York Academy of Art, (NY), The Arnot Art Museum in (NY) and is represented in the public collections of The Hunter Museum of Art in Chattanooga, (TN), The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art & Design (MO), The Columbus Museum of Art (Columbus, OH) and the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY).

Comissions- Portraits upon request


Passengers is a very striking, thought provoking painting about time, space, and the journey. One contemplates  the meaning of the placement of the monkeys, the superman costume and the painting or is it a dream?  Steve Assael's works are skillfully painted and he challenges the viewer to decide for themselves  the meaning of the painting.

Venus Pregnant

Venus Pregnant
A  haunting , provocative painting that is so beautiful; a  pregnant woman who wears makeup suggestive of a mask hiding the feelings of the woman,  the piercing denoting sacrifice.   We can only make assumptions. We are voyeurs.
