Canadian artist Steve Tracy was born in California in 1953. After discovering his natural affinity for art with a hand-me-down set of oil paints, Steve began his art at the School of Visual Arts in New York, where he rubbed shoulders with the likes of John Lennon, Yoko Ono, and Andy Warhol in Soho. He went on to graduate from the Colorado Institute of Fine Art furthering his studies in sculpting, design, drawing, illustration and commercial art. Steve also studied printmaking at California’s Kala Art Institute and was a member of the Denver Art Student League for many years, as both a student and an instructor.
Throughout his career, Steve Tracy has had numerous honoured recognitions including “Best in Show” awards, being published in the New York Times, a long term placement in the Empire State Building, and a feature as an “Artist to Collect” in the 2014 Fall Harvest edition of Arabella; a top Canadian architectural and design magazine. Steve has received acclaim for his many corporate commissions including work for Apple, Microsoft, Atari, Cirque du Soleil, the New York Friar’s Club, Bank of America, the French Embassy in San Francisco, MAC World, Orchestra London, The Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, and the World Figure Skating Championships.
Steve Tracy currently lives in London, Ontario, Canada where he has donated his time to many community events and fundraisers. “I have a great interest in London and want to see it thrive,” he says. Steve’s work is exhibited in galleries all over the world.
