Steven Ajzenberg

Steven Ajzenberg is a figurative painter. His early work focused on illustrating comic scenarios that were accompanied by text and often infused with his wry sense of humour. More recently, his style has evolved towards a more focused use of composition and colour. His current work explores numerous themes, including; representations of other artists' work that he admires, visceral responses to photographic images, as well as painting from still life. Steven Ajzenberg (born 1964) 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.
