Artist of the moment………..Jeffrey Steele

 

Jeffrey Steele is a British abstract artist. Steele’s work is based on geometric abstraction and pattern and design. He was also part of the Op Art movement with his black and white paintings which recall another British artist, Bridget Riley.

Jeffrey Steele was born in Cardiff, Great Britain in the year 1931. Steele went on to attend what is now Cardiff Metropolitan University. At the time it was the Cardiff College of Art.

The artist is also a gifted musician. He plays the trombone.

Two artists that provided inspiration to work in an abstract style were Victor Vasarely and Josef Albers.

Steele taught at the collegiate level at Portsmouth Polytech.

Steele flourished as an abstract artist in the 1970s. These works were mainly in black and white. Recently the artist has added to color and many of these newer works remind me artist Carlos Cruz Diez.
