Freelance film maker and photographer, based in Cardiff, South Wales. Steven began his career as a documentary film maker and photographer before moving towards more layered, abstracted images.
Steven's work practice combines both digital and analogue methods, from scratching and staining negatives to digital manipulation. His work creates a unique and stylised image that has a dense and painterly appearance.
The artist has had a number of group shows over the past ten years and several solo shows including MoMA Wales. His work has been bought by private collectors around the world.
Curator Adriana Marques of Rise Art:
"Irwin's take on our dense urbanscapes remind us that even bricks and mortar don't last forever. These layered works test the boundaries of photography and bring a sense of organic vitality back to our cities. "
