About the Artist

West Coast Choppers founder and CEO, Jesse James, personally chose Steve to recreate his custom cars as radio controlled toys.

He has since worked with many famous recording artists and athletes: Jay Z, Nelly, Diddy, Trey Songz and Alan Houston of the NY Knicks.

Steve’s inspiration comes mainly from music, politics and the streets of New York City. In his paintings he brings together elements of pop art, graffiti and cubism to create his own style.

Lately, Steve has been digitally designing fine art posters of rock bands, people, and songs that have inspired him and helped to mold him into the artist he is today. He continues to work in the fashion industry and has recently launched the brand Rock Beats Paper- inspired by art and music.
