Ben has been represented by the TROVE Gallery for over 20 years, over this time the gallery has had the pleasure of watching him grow his art career and become one of our most popular and sought after artists. His melding of art history and pop culture references never fail captivate his audience.

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.
