Steve Dibenedetto

1958, New York, États-Unis d'Amérique

Steve DiBenedetto (New York, United States, 1958) is an American artist who often incorporates his own old works and found objects from his studio, glued onto the surface of the canvas, and addresses themes of intensity and decomposition. He is primarily known for his paintings and drawings with thick layers populated by organic and mechanical forms. Common motifs include octopuses, helicopters, Ferris wheels, and more recently, architecture. The sinuous structures in the artist’s work seem to be in a constant state of apocalyptic decomposition, yet they are simultaneously charged with palpable electricity. He is the recipient of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Fellowship Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Painting, and the Tiffany Foundation Award. He regularly exhibits his work in New York and around the world.
