No description


Olivia Steele harnesses the power of neon to assert symbolic phrasing that allures and provokes. Her expansive career has seen her impart fragments of wisdom and wit all over the globe, from Tulum to Berlin to Mumbai in the form of site-specific land art and indoor installation. Aside from the immediately iconic and often humorous style of Steele’s work, her interventions are pointedly placed in environments that prompt existential musings. Her innate relationship with the sublime and spiritual manifest as a spectacle of explosive imagery. Steele’s opus positions her as one of the most compelling contemporary artists working in her field today.

“Good, bad, right or wrong, it’ s all relative. Art is notoriously ambiguous. The art of challenging conventional semiotics and observing the vast spectrum of strangers’ reactions and interpretations is highly rewarding“, says the artist.

Olivia Steele (*1985 Nashville, Tennessee) lives and works in Berlin and Mexico.
