Steve Barylick's career in art began very simply; he went from constantly doodling using pencils, crayons and pastels, to exploring color and how it created light and depth on paper.
After high school, Steve graduated from Massachusetts College of Art, receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting. He also received a Certificate in art history from the School of Fine Arts at Boston University. While in school, he developed his design skills and began creating and painting wall murals, which led to work with graphic design and architectural firms. During this time, he worked with "Nypro Inc.":http://www.nypro.com/ and "Sun Federal Savings Bank":https://www.sunfcu.org/index.html.
Alongside this professional experience, Steve's designs won first prize for two wall mural contests; one for Boston "MBTA":http://www.mbta.com, and the other for the "Boston Common Underground Garage":http://www.massconvention.com/bcg.html. The garage murals are no longer visible; but Steve's work is still on display at the "Kenmore Square Station":http://www.mbta.com/schedules_and_maps/subway/lines/stations/?stopId=15591.
