Winthrop STEVEN HURST grew up in the projects on Chicago’s South Side. He moved to New York at 21, where he studied graphic design, painting, illustration, and photography. His career has taken him to Boston, back to New York, Cleveland and the Bay Area. He now resides in historic Point Richmond, California.
Steve has had one-man shows of his paintings and illustrations in Illinois, New York City, Boston, Cleveland and the East Bay.
Most recently, for the second year in a row, Steve was invited to show his work at the prestigious, juried 2017 Sausalito Art Festival. “The show was a tremendous success for me. I sold many clocks and walked away with seven pages of people to contact who love my work.”
The paintings and illustrations in the show are from Steve’s private collection from 1976 to 1998. This is the first time works from this collection have been shown in the Bay area. In addition to the originals, affordable archive-quality Giclee prints will be offered for sale by special order.
Steve’s clocks are surreal, otherworldly wall sculptures that tell time. They are beautiful, they are functional, they inspire the observer to enter their own fantasies.
Steve welcomes visitors to his studio, located next to Hotel Mac in historic Point Richmond.
