About

Collage obsessed artist & street photographer Steven Quinn likes to combine cut-outs from old magazines and historic imagery to create often apocalyptic, sometimes humorous narratives.

His most current themes are domesticizing nuclear, political and intergalactic conflicts.

Steven Quinn graduated from his BA with 1st Class honours, graduated from the MFA from the University of Ulster and has shown his work alongside names such as Damien Hirst and Sarah Lucas at Tate Britain. He has also exhibited at the National Portrait gallery, the renowned Photographers gallery in Soho, the James Freeman gallery and in various venues throughout London. Quinn has also been showing his work overseas: New York in 2009, Frankfurt in 2014 and, more recently, at the ARC Gallery in Chicago for the “I can’t breathe” exhibition.

When Steven Quinn describes his work, he says “It’s a big melting pot where everything informs the other; a collage of inspiration, style, backgrounds. Most of my ideas strand from science and to date I think one of the coolest things I have done was to have had my DNA tested and printed as a portrait for The National Portrait Gallery”.

    Hi There
    I came across your blog through a friend and really like your work. I’m an artist myself and am studying an MFA at Wimbledon college of Art. I’ve recently got into collage work and found your work inspirational. I primarily work with IPad and IPhone.
    I have a blog and website if you’re interested in taking a look? The first is a daily blog I’ve had for a couple years and the second is my MFA research folio. This can also be accessed via the blog on the MFA Research Folio link
    have a good Christmas
