Photographers Learn to Equate Photography with Art
Colorado Springs artist and photographer Steve Weed will talk to area photographers about “My Art Life: From Photos to Paintings.”
“I will talk about how I started my career to where I am now in my career. My photography has been very influential in my painting; I would like to show how they can work together,” Steve Weed said.
Colorado Springs artist Steve Weed was raised under the dramatic skies of Oklahoma, Texas, and the New Mexico mountains, and was influenced by their visual impact. By the age of 13 he knew he wanted to make his mark in life as an image maker.
He wanted to permanently create and capture the unique beauty of any given moment in time. His dedication and skills were rewarded as a student when he won Young Talent in Oklahoma, then headed to Texas, earning his B.F.A. in painting from The University of Texas at San Antonio.
A well-respected artist, Steve’s subject matter and medium is not limited to any one genre or theme. A master in oils, watercolor and charcoal, Steve’s clientele list is comprised of art collectors from around the world. His distinct brush style and impeccable color palette capture the essence of aesthetic beauty in any given moment, regardless of subject matter. Beauty is the universal language and Steve’s work communicates images and memories that relate easily with the experiences and emotion of the viewer.
Steve made his way into the Colorado history archives when he created the Ashes to Art project following the devastating 2012 Waldo Canyon Fire that wiped out his neighborhood, raising the funding for the permanent Waldo Canyon Fire memorial. Using the ashes left in his yard, he infused them into his paint and created a collection of 22 fire related pieces that were auctioned off to raise money for long term healing.
