ARTIST BIOGRAPHY
Steve Coffey is from the small Southern Alberta town of Vulcan. He has been an integral part of the Canadian art and music scene for many years. He has curated traveling exhibitions, created large-scale public sculptures, taught college, and conducted many workshops and art residencies. After finishing his formal training in 1990 (University of Regina, Master of Fine Arts.) Steve practiced formalist metal sculpture in Edmonton & Central Alberta but eventually gave in to his love of drawing and representation and was seduced by the immediacy and challenges of oil paint. He began exploring the medium full time in 1995. Steve has exhibited extensively and his paintings can be found in numerous private and public collections throughout North America, Europe & Asia and he is represented across Canada by many well known Art Galleries.

Steve’s music has received critical acclaim over the course of ten albums to date and he and his band have performed regularly and been heard on many radio airwaves over many years, from commercial to college to frequencies in between. Steve notes such figures as Tom Thompson, Emily Carr, Alex Colville, A.Y Jackson, Bill Duma, Mike Scott, Don Van Vliet, Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell for helping define his world of art & music.

 

"My work is elemental with a focus on nature and the forces with which humanity has to contend. I search for a distinctive atmosphere from the immensity and grandeur of the plains to the human mark etched upon it."
