Steven Ajzenberg is a figurative painter whose process is considered and often infused with a wry sense of humour. While his early work explored comic illustrations and paintings accompanied by text, a gradual stylistic evolution has seen Ajzenberg demonstrate a more complete and assured depiction of satire in his work, which is complemented by economical use of colour and composition.
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 Honourable mention in This Film Festival, Calgary Canada.
