Steven Ajzenberg

Steven Ajzenberg is a figurative painter whose process is considered and often infused with a wry sense of humour. Over the years a clear pattern of development can be seen in Ajzenberg’s practice. While early work explored comic illustrations and paintings accompanied by text, a gradual stylistic evolution has seen Ajzenberg demonstrate a more complete and assured focus on colour and composition, where the influence of the likes of Picasso and Blackman can be detected. Steven Ajzenberg has been a regular studio artist at Arts Project Australia since 2000 and presented his first solo exhibition ‘Steven Ajzenberg Solo’ at Arts Project Australia in 2010. He has been included in several group exhibitions including, Melbourne Art Fair, Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne (each year from 2000-2014), National Gallery of Victoria 150th Anniversary, NGV, Melbourne and Pearls of Arts Project Australia: The Stuart Purves Collection, National touring exhibition (2007-2009). In 2010 his animation “A good day that always ends the wrong way” was awarded an Honourable mention in This Film Festival, Calgary Canada.
