Steven Assael attended Pratt Institute and teaches at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. His work focuses on the human figures rendered in glowing relief by gentle beams of warm and cool light. He balances naturalism with a romanticism that permeates his paintings and drawings. Assael’s work was the subject of a one-person exhibition at the Naples Museum of Art in FL, he exhibited in “New Old Masters,” curated by Donald Kuspit, at the National Museum in Gdansk, Poland, and exhibited across the US. His work is in the permanent collections of museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. Assael is represented by Forum Gallery, NYC.
