Steve Warburton is currently working (in Emerald) and exhibiting in Melbourne, Australia. Since completing a Fine Arts degree at Monash University, Warburton has exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions. His paintings and drawings are held in collections Australia-wide and internationally.
As an artist's work is a reflection of his or her emotions, ideals, thoughts and influences, it is necessary to understand the importance the work plays in the artist's life.
Warburton's work is the direct result of things that he has born witness to, overheard in conversations, observed in the media or dreamt. It reflects his right to express his thoughts in a way that is accessible to the viewer, both aesthetically and literally. As the world around us changes, the environment, the politics, our society, thus the artist's imagery changes too.
