Steele’s work is clever, often humorous, and technically rigorous. His artworks usually make a reference to art history, pop culture, even Utah iconography, like the Salt Flats, local barn yards, or Brigham Young. He explains he is the most inspired when his classical training reflects contemporary and conceptual ideas, creating relationships between the familiar and unfamiliar. His unique artistic style is contributing to Utah’s visual art landscape.
